An entrepreneur is an individual who initiates, organizes, and operates a business venture, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so. Entrepreneurs are often seen as innovators, developing new ideas, goods, services, and business/or operational models. They are key drivers of economic growth, job creation, and societal change. While entrepreneurship involves taking on risks and uncertainties, it also offers the potential for significant personal, professional, and financial rewards. Entrepreneurs are characterized by their initiative, vision, resilience, and adaptability.
