ENTREPRENEURSHIP BMS SEM VI
The ultimate measure of a man
Is not where he stands
In moments of comfort and convenience
But where he stands
At times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King.

The best entrepreneur in any developing country is not the one who uses much capital but an individual who knows how to organize the employment and training of his employees.
A classic example is that of Mr. Dhirubhai Ambani because he had all the dynamic qualities of a successful entrepreneur, as a result of which today, he was the owner of the largest private company in India. All decisions which he had taken to grow were instinct and no one had taught him to take decisions.
BASICS OF AN ENTREPRENEUR
We can define entrepreneur as one who innovates, raises money, assembles inputs, choose managers and sets the organization going with his ability to identify them.
As per Peter Drucker- “An entrepreneur is one who always searches for change, responds to it as an opportunity. Entrepreneurs innovate. Innovation is a specific instrument of entrepreneurship”.
As per Joseph A. Schumpeter- “Entrepreneur is one who innovates, raises money, and assembles inputs, chooses managers and sets the commercial organization going with his ability to identify them and opportunities which others are not able to identify and is able to fulfill such economic opportunities”.
