Richard Branson is best known from founding the popular Virgin brand. In 1970, he started with a small mail-order record business and gradually founded other companies in different industrial sectors, which he also bundled under the name Virgin. One of his most well-known companies within the group: Virgin Atlantic, founded in 1984, is now one of the largest airlines in the world. As of today, Virgin Group contains more than 100 companies worldwide with approximately 60,000 employees in 50 countries, making it one of the biggest business conglomerates worldwide.

But that’s not all: Branson has challenged himself with many record breaking adventures, including the fastest ever Atlantic Ocean crossing, a series of hot air balloon adventures and kitesurfing across the English Channel. He has also written six books, was ranked the world’s most followed person on LinkedIn and has more than 11.5 million followers across his social networks.
