What is an entrepreneur?

What is an entrepreneur? A fine question indeed.

I tripped over quite a good definition at Entrepreneur of the Industry. And I quote:
“Being ‘entrepreneurial’ is not just about generating more growth and profit, a business start up or a new idea. It is about individual vision and leadership in any business situation that results in a successful outcome.
This might include:-
  • Using a different material or working practice to manufacture a product that saves money or ‘makes a difference’.
  • Creating a new business opportunity that has a social impact.
  • The strategy that turns around an unsuccessful business or division – a management buy out for example.
  • The exceptional service concept that challenges traditional ways of doing business.

Whatever the situation, these individuals make a significant contribution to the success and image of our industry which is acknowledged and recognised by The Entrepreneur of the Industry Award, now in its second year.”
