Brit royal Princess Beatrice backs a start-up
To make the journey from passion to paycheck is a shared dream that inspires people of all strata. Case in point: Princess Beatrice, grand-daughter to Queen Elizabeth. Earlier this month, we heard from our fly on the wall in the West that Beatrice recently kicked up her job at Manhattan investment firm Sandbridge Capital to pursue her “entrepreneurial ambitions”. Now it seems the 27-year-old royal is all set to start her own business consultancy. “Her start-up will be backed by Sandbridge Capital itself,” one source suggests. If so, it will certainly make the journey easier.
Beatrice, the daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, is no stranger to change — having switched quite a few jobs in her fairly-short professional life. But perhaps that is exactly why going the start-up way will work for her.
“She is a young girl making her own way in the world and finding her feet. She should be applauded for striking out on her own,” a friend told Hello! magazine in the UK. We couldn’t agree more. And while sweat equity is the best start-up capital, having a royal bloodline doesn’t hurt!
