Introduction

What is Entrepreneurship?
The term “entrepreneurship” comes from the French verb “entreprendre” and the German word “unternehmen”, both means to “undertake”. According to Joseph Schumpeter modern definition of entrepreneurship is “the carrying out of new combinations we call ‘enterprise’,” and “the individuals whose function it is to carry them out we call ‘entrepreneurs’.” Schumpeter tied entrepreneurship to the creation of five basic “new combinations” namely: Introduction of a new product, Introduction of a new method of production, Opening of a new market, The conquest of a new source of supply and Carrying out of a new organization of industry.

Thus, the need of the hour for entrepreneur is not only to follow norms and set standard rules but to tackle the problems with high degree of intellectual and innovative ways to resolve the problem. They should be committed and passionate enough to explore every new opportunity in every facets of society. Entrepreneurship is a dynamic process of vision, change, and creation. Whereas it involves taking calculated risks - in terms of time, equity, career or any future uncertainties.
