“Never before in history has innovation offered promise of so much to so many in so short a time.” - Bill Gates

“I wanted to be an editor or a journalist, I wasn't really interested in being an entrepreneur, but I soon found I had to become an entrepreneur in order to keep my magazine going.” - Richard Branson
