He is best known as the founder of Virgin Group, which comprises more than 400 companies.

At the age of sixteen his first business venture was a magazine called Student.

In 1970, he set up a mail-order record business.

In 1972, he opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records, later known as Virgin Megastores.
