Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled. An entrepreneur sees an opportunity and exercises initiative by organizing a venture to turn an idea into reality. An entrepreneur is often seen as a business leader and innovator of new ideas and business processes.
Entrepreneurship is defined by risks and rewards. Most people who become entrepreneurs are more comfortable with risks; prefer unstructured working and learning environments and collaborating with small team of people.
