Enterprise: Adventuring Entrepreneurs

A thought leadership publication for entrepreneurs and growth companies

Launching a business always requires a certain appetite for adventure. In this issue of Enterprise, we focus on those entrepreneurs that have embarked on extraordinary journeys, engaged in extreme sports or built businesses with adventure at their core. Their stories are both astonishing and inspiring, testing the limits of human endeavour.

Inspired by the efforts of Smith & Williamson’s own Guy Rigby, who is attempting to row across the Atlantic this winter, we talk to entrepreneurs such as Quill Content founder Ed Bussey, who hiked to the North Pole, or Caspar Craven, who sailed the world with three young children. We also talk to those who have made adventure their business – jet pack maker Richard Browning, Dr Raj Joshi, founder of the Adventure Boutique or ‘Adventureman’ Jamie McDonald.
