Educating and Supporting Entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs, powered by their dreams and passions, have been the engine for creating new jobs, generating revenue, advancing innovation, enhancing productivity, and improving business models and processes. Entrepreneurship is the cornerstone of the free enterprise system around the world. In fact more than 500 million adults around the globe are engaged in some form of entrepreneurial activity each year.
Definition of global entrepreneur: A global entrepreneur seeks out and conducts new and innovative business activities across national borders. These activities may consist of exporting, licensing, opening a new sales office, or acquiring another venture.
Supporting Entrepreneurial Capitalism Around The World
Entrepreneurial capitalism is key to the success for entrepreneurship. Starting with practically nothing, an entrepreneur is one who organizes a new venture, manages it, and assumes the associated risk.
entrepreneurial capitalism: private capital, investing in private start-ups, with potential for a viable harvest
Good entrepreneurial management is vitally important to the economic health not only of American businesses, but also of businesses in the rest of the world. Because of its importance, entrepreneurial management should be thoroughly understood, but this is easier said than done.
The field is relatively complex, and it is undergoing constant change in response to shifts in economic conditions. In addition, there is a substantial body of knowledge, concepts, and tools that entrepreneurs need to know in order to launch and grow a company successfully. All of this makes entrepreneurship stimulating and exciting but also challenging and sometimes discouraging.
