Expert tips: How to start a business

This week’s expert tips come from none other than Richard Branson, who was on hand at a recent Virgin StartUp event to explain what it takes to start a business from scratch…

"The best education that anyone can have is getting out there and doing it, by getting your hands dirty and just trying something you will learn everything there is to know about running a business. And once you can run one business, you can run any business,” explains the Virgin Group founder.

Joining Richard on stage to share their insights are Sir Brian Souter, founder of Stagecoach, and Jim Cregan, co-founder of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee. Can you guess which of the panellists decides to douse one of his fellow entrepreneurs with some ice water? Yep, you’ve got it in one.
