Let’s delve into the fascinating world of Vivek Ganapathy Ramaswamy (/vɪˈvɛk rɑːmɑːˈswɑːmiː/; born August 9, 1985), the American entrepreneur turned 2024 Republican Party presidential primary candidate. Ramaswamy’s journey began in 2014 when he founded the biopharmaceutical company, Roivant Sciences, after an impressive career as an investment partner. Since 2020, he has fearlessly voiced his dissent against stakeholder theory, Big Tech censorship, and critical race theory through his writings and speeches.
But that’s not all! After bidding adieu to Roivant in 2021, Ramaswamy co-founded and now serves as the executive chairman of Strive Asset Management, an investment firm staunchly opposed to the environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) framework.
