I am pleased and honered and humbled to be in the presence of fellow nominees for the Excellence in Entrepreneur Award.

Lets start with the value of Entreprenuership.

Let’s start with some definitions:

  • originates from the French word entreprendre that means “to undertake”
  • Merriam Webster - One who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise
  • Dictionary.com – A person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk
  • Howard Stevenson (HBS Professor) – One who pursues opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled
  • Albert Shapero – One who takes initiative, accepts risk of failure, and has an internal locus of control

Entrepreneurs are and engine of growth and we are lucky to live in a country that fosters growth. Are you taking advantage of the opportunity you have.

Take action
