Launched by Business 2012 and daily deals website Huddlebuy, it doesn't require too much time or effort to enter. To be in with a chance of winning, simply enter your email address here, http://www.huddlebuy.co.uk/business2012richardbranson .
The organisers hope the competition will go viral and they have made it so that if you pass on the invite, you stand a better chance of winning. The four lucky winners will meet the Virgin owner on 18 March at the Business 2012 event.
"This is supercharged social media sharing as we apply the power of the crowd to competitions in something we call 'group winning'," says Huddlebuy CEO Saurav Chopra. "Put simply, if your friend wins, then you win too. And who wouldn't want to win half an hour with Sir Richard Branson?"
Branson, who will also be speaking at the event, says he is looking forward to meeting the winners. "No one has a monopoly on good ideas and events like this can open the door to better connections and business opportunities; something we all need during these challenging times," he says.
Running on 18 - 20 March at The O2 in London, Business 2012 is free to attend, with over 600 workshops, seminars and exhibitors.
"We are always seeking to do things differently in the way that we drive the event and promote it to our target audience," says Business 2012 founder Vishal Misal. "Social media plays a key role for us in terms of promoting the event and what's unique about this use of social media with Huddlebuy, is that the competition can be shared via Facebook or Twitter."
