From Bond to Branson Monday 21 July 2008 PDF Print Serial Entrepreneur Brad Rosser has worked with some of the best in the business; from Sir Richard Branson to Alan Bond. Now Brad, Australian born, is taking the UK by storm and making his own mark. Besides making the Sunday Times Rich List in 2006, he is also heavily involved in many entrepreneurial ventures and still finds time to mentor young entrepreneurs just starting out in the business. Rosser was headhunted to become group corporate development director of Virgin and worked alongside the legendary Richard Branson. Essentially his job was to develop new Virgin subsidiaries to develop the Virgin brand and it was here when he was furthering other entrepreneurs’ ventures that he knew he wanted to start up his own. This was the beginning of a string of highly successful companies that had Brad in the driver’s seat. Having learned from the master himself, Brad fell in love with the idea of a start up company. He wasn’t interested in restructuring or merging companies, his interest lay in watching a company grow and helping foster strong roots to secure its future. Although Brad now has a multitude of companies under his belt running strong, he has changed focus a bit and is becoming increasingly interested in helping others. Brad says “this is where my passion really lies, in helping a new start up that is struggling to find its feet. I have been referred to as the ‘Business Surgeon’ and have started holding a Dragon Den’s style pitch in my office several days a month”. Brad can easily go into a company, observe it for a day and point out its weaknesses and where it needs to make changes. With television shows such as Dragon’s Den and government initiatives promoting entrepreneurship there is a strong sense of support for budding businesses and yet Brad Rosser has identified a gap in the field: “What’s lacking is a comprehensive support system to take the entrepreneur from point a to point b. The first two years are vital to the survival of a new company so it’s imperative they have the resources and information they need to be successful from the start”. Brad is passionate about fostering a stronger culture of entrepreneurial-ship in the UK, and is a regular speaker at universities and business start-up events. He is also actively involved in government-sponsored initiatives to encourage young people to establish their own businesses.
