From Richard Branson to J.K. Rowling, these are the most influential entrepreneurs in the UK.
Whether you’re a would-be entrepreneur or have spent decades being one. You could be worse-off than to read the short biographies of British entrepreneurs who have been through the journey before.
So we’ve compiled a list consisting of the top British entrepreneurs.
As Seen On …
Here’s what some leading British entrepreneurs said about this list:

Our leaders’ list gets updated each year and is based exclusively on social influence, and unlike Forbes, not on net worth.
There are people on this list who have a net worth in the millions yet are indexed higher than people with a net worth in the billions because they have a more immediate impact on society as ‘movers & shakers’ in this fast-paced world.
Our objective with this list is to give rise to new entrepreneurial activity in the UK economy by showcasing inspiring examples and their quotes.
We also hope to inspire existing entrepreneurs to lend their influence towards achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals by 2030:
Along with our index of influencers, our research and methodology for this year’s list has been shared publicly, which is accessible via Google Sheets.
If you believe you fit the criteria, or you know a business founder who does, you can nominate them for next year’s release by contacting us.
Follow these British entrepreneurs to keep up with trends. You will also learn what resources they use to stay in the know.
