Chances of meeting one’s role model nowadays are extremely rare, i don’t mean via Twitter or Facebook but face-face really having a proper conversation with them physically, let’s not mention if that role model or inspirational figure was Richard Branson.
However, it became possible for three lucky entrepreneurs to meet Richard Branson through the Virgin Pioneer Media competition where each contestant uploaded a video giving a brief intro about themselves and their start-up rounding it off with a question to Richard Branson, a question which they all hoped they could ask him personally if they were selected as one of the three winners.
Here are the three entrepreneurs that got through:-
The 20 year old CEO and founder of SB.TV (an online music media channel) and Just Jam Records (a label agency under Sony RCA) asked...
“As SB.TV has got a big youth audience, how would you develop it into an organization that is as successful as yours?” He ended the voting with 3,650 voters coming first in the quest.
Sebastian Thiel - The CEO of “It’s Upshot” asked
“If you could have a conversation with anyone in history, who would it be with and why?”(Including those that are not alive) His campaign drew 3, 185 voters.
“It’s Upshot” is an online Youth entertainment brand and culture TV channel, which aims to provide all kinds of entertainments. Sir-Bastian aims to create a new youth sub culture that is dominantly against the uses of violence. Its upshot is all about believing, achieving and beginning young.
Matthew Lovett, CEO of “WOW Media asked...
“What was your biggest fear whilst setting up your company and how did you overcome it?” he ended up with 2,758 voters.
Matt’s company WOW Media helps other companies in creating enticing, eye-catching and sophiscated websites with Supports of all kinds made available to customers and potential customers ensuring they receive the best treatment.
All three entrepreneurs have different kinds of business, produces different kinds of products and services for their customers but now have one thing in common, they are all meeting Richard Branson.
It was rather exciting seeing how these entrepreneurs used Facebook and Twitter to drive their loved ones, fans and customers to their voting page.
