Who is an Entrepreneur

Investopedia defines Entrepreneur as “An  individual who, rather than working as an employee, runs a small business and assumes all the risks and rewards of a given business venture, idea, or good or service offered for sale. The entrepreneur is commonly seen as a business leader and innovator of new ideas and business processes.”

Yes……an entrepreneur in a true sense is an innovator with a determination to achieve. An entrepreneur has the essential skills to initiate new ideas in the market, create goods, provide services and overcomes several challenges and obstacles to convert the venture into a profit.

Entrepreneur and Economic Development

Entrepreneurs create new businesses and provide path breaking contributions for services and products.  Many a times an entrepreneurial venture can help develop associated industries too.

An entrepreneur creates social change. Many a times the products or services break away from the traditional and existing systems or technologies. Creation of a product or offering of services which are new and innovative shall bring about social change in the society.

Successful entrepreneurial ventures invest in community development too. As any business organization, entrepreneurs invest in social responsibility of the community or area they are living in.
