Entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author Vivek Ramaswamy has launched several prosperous businesses. A first-generational American, he formed Roivant Sciences in 2014 and oversaw the biggest biotechnology IPOs of 2015 and 2016. His efforts finally paid off with the FDA approval of medications following successful clinical studies in several different illness categories. He established Strive Asset Management in 2022 with the goal of giving ordinary Americans a voice again in the American economy by inspiring businesses to put quality before politics. Now, Vivek is among the aspirant who is determined to conquer, change, and rule by fiat in opposition to Trump as a member of the Republican Party.
Who is Vivek Ramaswamy?
For a man possessing such an extraordinary skill set that compromises doing almost everything, what is it that Vivek Ramaswamy isn't? This man, before becoming the face of big talk, actually achieved big. He was born to Indian parents and attended Harvard. He graduated from there in 2007 and took his next steps to Yale. Before securing a degree in biology, he co-fathered a business platform for entrepreneurs named "Student Bussiness.com" in his senior year at Harvard.
A Man of Great Intellect
Vivek was the Harvard Political Union's chairman and one among the three junior students chosen for a committee that advised on the choice of the university's current president. A summary of his final thesis, which focused on the moral issues created by the creation of human-animal chimeras, was endorsed and published in both the Boston Globe and The Times of New York while he was still a student at Harvard. Vivek was the commencement speaker of his class, a nationally rated junior-level tennis player, and a gifted pianist in high school. He now counts as a board member on The Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity and Philanthropy Roundtable. No wonder why this man is truly believed to achieve what he claims to.
The Face of Intellectual Conservatism
As an entrepreneur who is loaded and has successfully run businesses, the longshot Republican is aiming to win party nominations with an elaborately schemed proposal. With no prior political experience, Vivek has positioned himself as an outsider who will advance Donald Trump's "America First" agenda beyond the previous Republican president. Among his other ideas, Vivek has pitched ending down federal agencies, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the government Bureau of Investigation, and the Education Department. He has also shown detest and complained about what he calls an identity crisis on a national level in his presidential campaign speeches advocating that the US needs to come together behind its fundamental ideas of meritocracy, the rule of law, and freedom of expression.
Devotion to Nomination
When asked why he thinks he can win the party's nomination as a political stranger and a lesser-known figure to most Americans, Republican presidential candidate and businessperson Vivek Ramaswamy tackled the question by disclosing that he is "running specifically on his vision for this country" and not on his biography or business credentials. The 37-year-old biotech and healthcare entrepreneur joined a primary that contained former President Donald Trump and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley when he announced his longshot run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024.
Paving his way toward the white house, Ramaswamy has made it clear that his anti-woke perspective aligns with the rule of law and the power that a constitution holds. He might be a long shot in this race, but Vivek is not coming slow with nomination proposals and selective principles, as he intends to abolish systems first and establish them later. In any case, Donald Trump may have to trot down the road wittier, given that Ramaswamy has his eyes on the prize.
