Christmas Tree Startup
Richard Branson started his first Startup, a Christmas Tree Farm, when he was at school.
Richard Branson started his first Startup when he was at school. His plan was to plant 400 Christmas Trees in the field behind his house and wait a year for them to grow large enough to sell.
He planted 400 seeds and hoped to make £2 a tree - a profit of £795 after taking out the £5 cost of the seeds.Unfortunately when he came back from his boarding school for the summer holidays there were only a couple of tiny plants growing - the rest had been eaten by rabbits.
