Starting a business is a leap of faith. It’s unpredictable, exciting, foolish and brave — it’s an adventure.

From Virgin Atlantic, Richard Branson’s transatlantic airline, Gimlet Creative, and Figulio&Partners, The Venture introduces you to the innovators, artists and risk takers behind pioneering businesses. These are businesses that changed the face of their industries, but not in the ways you might think.

You might not recognize these entrepreneurs by name, but once you hear their stories, you won’t be able to imagine the world without them.

The Venture is hosted by Ashley Milne-Tyte, a British-American writer, radio reporter, and podcast host based in New York. She hosts The Broad Experience, a podcast about women in the workforce. She’s published stories for Marketplace, NPR, BBC, WNYC, The World, Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, and also teaches radio storytelling at Columbia Journalism School.
