What is Entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship is derived from French word “Entrependre” and German word “uternehmen” both referring to men taking endeavors. In simple words anyone who exhibits self development, creativity and risk taking characteristics can be called as an entrepreneur.
Economist defines an Entrepreneur as the one who brings together resources, labor, material and other assets and increasing their value and also he introduces changes, innovation and a new order. But the Psychologists define an entrepreneur as the one who is typically driven by a psychological force, which creates a desire to attain something.
According to someone: Entrepreneurship is spending some years of your life in a way that most people won’t to spend rest of your life like others can’t. According to Nolan Bushnell (entrepreneur) -“The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”
