The Oxford Dictionary definition of an entrepreneur says:
Entrepreneur – Pronunciation: /ˌɒntrəprəˈnəː/ noun “a person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit: many entrepreneurs see potential in this market”.
Wikipedia says entrepreneur is “a term applied to a person who is willing to help launch a new venture or enterprise and accept full responsibility for the outcome”.
Even entrepreneurs themselves have their own definition of the term. But what actually makes an entrepreneur? What are the key characteristics of an entrepreneur?
This is the first in a series of short video blogs highlighting Exchange members and their interpretation of what makes an entrepreneur.
It features Simon Burges of BiP Solutions, Liz Hoskin of Positive Qualities, Nick Cohen of PCR IT, Billy Lyle of Target 360, Hamish Robertson of RT Franchises and David Frame of B&D 2010 Group.
