ABSTRACT
The article discusses the business undertakings of Richard Li, who broke away from his father Li Ka-shing and the family business seventeen years ago, to start Star TV with $125 million seed money from his father. The investment paid off when Richard sold Star for $950 million and earned his own spot on the "FORBES" billionaires list. Last year, Richard set off a list of competing deals to sell the Hong Kong telephone company PCCW.
