What is an Entrepreneur?

What is an entrepreneur? A fine question indeed. I tripped over a good definition at Entrepreneur of the Industry:

“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:-

1. Using a different material or working practice to manufacture a product that saves money or ‘makes a difference’.

2. Creating a new business opportunity that has a social impact.

3. The strategy that turns around an unsuccessful business or division – management buy out for example.

4. 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.”
