Richard Turner is a fountain of entrepreneurial knowledge. He’s founded four successful businesses in different industries, from food distribution to labour hire to renewable energy – with three of those becoming multi-billion-dollar startups. One of them is ZEN Energy, the second-largest electricity retailer in South Australia, and soon to become Australia’s first Clean Energy Utility.
As a mentor to 100s of early-stage startups, and as the former Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Adelaide, he’s got a wealth of experience to share about starting businesses, reinvention and industry disruption. His new book, The Essential Entrepreneur, is an essential guide. Take it away, Richard.
