To come out of Soviet Russia and become one of the richest men in the world is no easy task, but for some one as focussed as Len Blavatnik, it’s as good as fulfilling a lifelong dream. He defied the odds and made it to the United States and made a fortune through his own efforts. Born to a Jewish family, in what is present day Ukraine, he attended the Moscow State University but was not able to complete his course due to immigration issues.
He moved to the United States and received his degrees from Columbia University and Harvard University.
At the age of 29, when most young men will be still contemplating the cross roads, Len established Access Industries, based in the city of New York. His firm is responsible for many strategic partnerships in Europe, North as well as South America. After the fall of communism in Russia, Access started diversifying in terms of the industries which they specialized in- going on to include oil, coal, aluminium, entertainment and petrochemicals to name a few.
