General Information about Entrepreneurship for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.

Entrepreneurship is the process of creating a new business. The individual who creates it is called an entrepreneur and is usually bearing the majority of the risks, while also enjoying most of the rewards and profits. Successful entrepreneurship creates and extracts value, and relies upon the ability of changing and creating change in the surrounding environment. Although monetary profit is often the key reason for creating a new business, investing time, knowledge, and energy into something new can have intrinsic rewards.

While entrepreneurship is sometimes used interchangeably with the term “small business,” not all small businesses are entrepreneurial in the strict sense of the term. Entrepreneurship is much more than a simple proprietorship or leadership of an organization with a small number of employees. On the contrary, a good entrepreneur often seeks to create innovative products, processes, or services, and aims to scale up the company by adding employees or looking for national or international collaborations. Entrepreneurs must have strong leadership and decision-making skills in order to be able to transform innovations into economic goods, while facing the financial risks any new business entails. Since an entrepreneur’s decisions can affect an organization as a whole, he or she must have a deep sense of responsibility and accountability.
