Become an Official Entrepreneur
The ‘B’ Factor
Branson Centre Official Entrepreneurs are innovative, socially-conscious entrepreneurs who think big. We are looking for entrepreneurs who want to launch a start-up or grow their existing start-up in a sustainable and remarkable way. We welcome companies from all industries, as long as they stand out from the ordinary.
You should also be:
- Passionate about what you do
- Open to new ideas and concepts
- Willing to take calculated risks
- Ready to be challenged and challenge yourself
- Dedicated in the pursuit of your vision
- Driven by a unique viewpoint and perspective that goes beyond making money
- Ethically and socially minded about how you operate your business, and the impact you can make in your community and the environment.
This is what we call the ‘B’ Factor.
We love entrepreneurs of all ages and from all places, but in order to be a Branson Centre Official Entrepreneur, you must be at least 18 years of age and reside in one of the countries where we operate.
We love great ideas, but we love even more when great ideas are backed by strategic thought and strong due diligence. If you have researched your industry and identified a distinct value proposition, then our support programme can help you bring it to life. It’s great to follow your passion, but make sure you are following it into an industry that offers enough growth potential for you to profitably scale. Remember, the best kind of risk is a calculated risk and to truly benefit from our programme you need a sustainable business model that adds real value – one that will attract investment, create jobs and earn revenue. You should be thinking globally, or at least regionally, from day one.
If you have already started servicing customers, then we consider your business operational. Most of our Official Entrepreneurs have start-ups that are between 1-3 years old. This is often the period in the development of your business when you need crucial resources to scale and push through barriers as you establish yourself in the market. That being said, we welcome any entrepreneur with an operational business that can break new ground.
