EN 101: Introduction to Entrepreneurship > What is Entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship is defined as "organizing and managing an enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable risk and initiative."

It is important to note that entrepreneurship is a team sport. It isn't enough for only the entrepreneur to be excellent, it is also required of their suppliers, their lawyers, their accountants and a whole list of individuals and businesses that they rely on to execute their vision.
