Entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson to Detail His Legacy
Branson’s talk, “Nuno & Sir Richard Branson: New Tech, New Banks, New Frontiers,” will be led by Feedzai CEO Nuno Sebastiao and cover such topics as Branson’s past successes, including his founding of his global investment company Virgin Group and his extensive philanthropic work, as well as innovative new technologies and working in the finance industry.
In a press release from Money20/20, Sebastiao expressed his excitement to lead a discussion with a prominent figure like Branson, whose innovations and success make him stand apart in the technology and finance sectors.
Branson says his success comes from his intense focus on building businesses that operate differently from other companies and are determined to make their own rules for success. He says this revolutionary model was the best way he found to challenge the practices of business as usual and take things in the investment sector to a whole different level.
The entrepreneur dove into the magazine business at the age of 16. He later developed an interest in investment when he founded the Virgin Group in 1970. Since then, the company has grown to span the industries of communication, finance, entertainment, travel, and more. Its success has given Branson the opportunity to found a dynasty under the Virgin name, which garners respect from companies around the world. He also has an established foothold in charity work, helping others create innovative businesses for the future, donating, and establishing green initiatives.
