In photos: Business is an adventure LA

Take a look at the best photos from Virgin Atlantic’s recent Business is an adventure event in LA, where Richard Branson was joined by a panel of expert entrepreneurs and the city’s hottest start-ups…

Check back later in the week for video highlights from the day and all the key take-outs, where debate focused on how simple solutions cross borders and the ability to think globally as an entrepreneur.

The Virgin Atlantic cabin crew welcome guests into the stunning Ace Hotel Theatre, which played host to the airline's first Business is an adventure event of the year.

Moderator Carol Roth and panellists Richard Branson, Cassey Ho, Sean Rad and Miguel McKelvey prepare to take their place on stage.

While in the lobby guests receive a pre-debate massage, courtesy of local start-up Soothe.

There was also a chance to check out the latest in augmented reality, thanks to LA tech start-up VNTANA.

Back on stage the debate was starting to get underway, with our experts all offering up advice to the entrepreneurs in the room.

It wasn't long until Richard Branson told the room his Tinder story, much to the amusement not Sean Rad.

Before long it was time for the start-up showcase, here we see the guys from Heal explain their business to the panel.

As always Richard Branson had a pen and paper to make notes on the start-ups.

The next start-up to impress the panel was local favourite HopSkipDrive.

As the hour long livestream came to an end the audience showed their appreciation for the panel and our moderator.

With the livestream now over it was time for discussions to continue, here the Virgin Group founder catches up with FocusMotion, Heal and HopSkipDrive following their impressive showcases.
