The world of business is full of followers, executives, start-ups and shareholders that always aspire to great business leaders who walk the talk and show actions instead of just working only through words. The real business leaders who stand out today always value action, creation, innovation and actual results. Those who win are successful because of their actions, and not just in the way they trick their shareholders by talk. In the case with the success of Peter Briger, both as a principal of Fortress Investment Group and a manager of dedicated employees, valuing actions is an important element in sustaining the success of his ventures.
The official website of Princeton University showed that Peter Briger’s recent inspiring action is through being an active donor in the business endeavors and campaigns of the institution. It’s common knowledge that start-ups and entrepreneurs need all the support, funding and backing that they need, and it’s good to know that Peter Briger has put his name and money in such support. With the Entrepreneurship Program of Princeton through the help of Peter Briger, there will be more discoveries, more talents and more innovation that would be generated. There will be more inspiration for students or the young to risk their talents, time and money in developing new ideas for already existing effective programs. Peter Briger’s support for Princeton would then enable a fund support of $100,000 to match the seed funds that would be given to the school’s alumni who would set out new ventures. Princeton prides to be a value-creating organization and school that put ideas into fruition, and with the support of people like Briger, such vision would then be easily put into action. The alumni that would be selected for the funding would also get network opportunities, other than monetary support from Princeton.
Forbes Top 400 Business Professional
Being the Principal and Co-chairman of Fortress Investment Group’s Board of Directors is serious work enough, but being acknowledged by Forbes to be part of Top 400 Business Professionals today is also a source of inspiration for people who believe in Briger. This award and recognition is indeed testament to the more than 15 dedicated years that Briger had spent for Goldman, Sachs and Co, prior to founding Fortress. Briger’s leadership roles for Asian Real Estate Private Equity business as well as the Asian Distress Debt Business could also be a fantastic source of inspiration for the next generation of risk-takers.
