What Is Entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship is the process of launching, owning, and running a new business venture which begins at a small scale and may grow into a successful small, medium, or large company. Entrepreneurs must be willing to take risks and possess the vision to embrace new ideas or business opportunities that transfer to the marketplace for a profit. To succeed entrepreneurs must exhibit or develop a variety of skills which include business know-how, innovation, creativity and good technology skills. Potential Entrepreneurs may seek career opportunities as the sole proprietor of a business or may decide to apply their skills in an entrepreneurial company or family owned business.
