First Among Equals Award
“More than ever we need risk takers. A philosopher said, ‘Courage is the highest virtue’, and I believe that. It takes a lot of courage to start a business, to take a lot of risks.
And as my very good late father used to say: The establishment is full of cowards. The people who don’t have much to lose are the people who punt it all.”
