Blavatnik Shows He Can Invest More than One Way

By Access Industries

accessIndustriesIf you pay any attention to the industrial world, you probably don’t need to be introduced to Leon Blavatnik. You’d probably kill to meet him in person, but it’s not like you need to be told about the billionaire and all he has accomplished before even reaching the age of 60. The man is not just a champion of industry, but charitable efforts as well.

However, there’s a lot more to this man’s story than most people give him credit for. There’s a reason Blavatnik and Harvard and Blavatnik and Cambridge are so often used in the same sentence.

For one, he went to both. Blavatnik didn’t inherit some family empire. Instead, he went out of his way to gain the education it would take to create the industrial empire he currently presides over.

He then went back and gave mightily to both. Millions have been donated from Blavatnik to make education more available to many who would otherwise not be able to afford any college, much less these amazing institutions.

Blavatnik knows an opportunity when he sees one, but his remarkable gaze isn’t stuck in just the world of software and industry. He has long invested in himself and others to get the unparalleled results he’s become known for.

While all kinds of things could be said about Access Industries, not enough can be said about its head, Len Blavatnik. Amongst other things, the billionaire is known for his Blavatnik Young Scientists Award and countless other philanthropic contributions.
