What is Entrepreneurship?


There are many definitions of entrepreneurship, as the word has a long and varied history.  However, a great and all-encompassing definition, from Professor Howard Stevenson of the Harvard Business School is this:

"Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity beyond the resources you currently control."  

But there are plenty of ways to define entrepreneurship, and some even say we are all entrepreneurs!  I believe this, that entrepreneurship is a mindset, not just a way to make money!

So you must be focussed, willing to see the possibilities and be adaptable, all under pressure. Inventive, creative and persuasive, no matter the opportunity or venture.

Once you've had a browse through our excellent beginner resources, you should have a better idea of what entrepreneurship can mean for you.
