TE - I - I - 13 Entrepreneurship is the engine of growth for the turn of 21st century Entrepreneurship is the best hope for an eternal economic springtime
TE - I - I - 14 A MODEL OF THE ENTREPRENEURIAL PROCESS
TE - I - I - 15 STATS BUT REMEMBER –1 business in 10 will reach its 10th birthday. –Starting businesses is like starting love affairs (paraphrasing George Bernard Shaw) –"Any fool can start one, it takes a genius to end one successfully." U. S. Examples: JOBS – jobs have to be created every day (= 2,5 million jobs per year) –In the 80's 5% of the young companies created 77% of jobs –15% of these companies created 94% of jobs –Fortune 500 companies eliminated 3.5 million jobs in the 80's GROWTH –500,000 small companies grow by 20% per year ENTREPRENEURSHIP AT UNIVERSITIES - MIT –Over 4,000 businesses established by alumni –1.1million jobs –$ 232 billion in sales
TE - I - I - 16 WHAT MAKES AN ENTREPRENEUR? The Ten D’s (1) Dream –Entrepreneurs have a vision of what the future could be like for them and their business. And, more importantly, they have the ability to implement their dreams. Decisiveness –They don't procrastinate. They make decisions swiftly. Their swiftness is a key factor in their success. Doers –Once they decide on a course of action, they implement it as quickly as possible. Determination –They implement their ventures with total commitment. They seldom give up, even when confronted by obstacles that seem insurmountable. Dedication –They are totally dedicated to their business, sometimes at considerable cost to their relationships with their friends and families. They work tirelessly. Twelve-hour days, and seven-day work weeks are not uncommon when an entrepreneur is striving to get a business off the ground.
TE - I - I - 17 WHAT MAKES AN ENTREPRENEUR? The Ten D’s (2) Devotion –Entrepreneurs love what they do. It is that love that sustains them when the going gets tough. And it is love of their product or service that makes them so effective at selling it. Details –It is said that the devil resides in the details. That is never more true than in starting and growing a business. The entrepreneur must be on top of the critical details. Destiny –They want to be in charge of their own destiny rather than dependent on an employer. D-Marks –Getting rich is not the prime motivator of entrepreneurs. Money is more a measure of their success. They assume that if they are successful they will be rewarded. Distribute –Entrepreneurs distribute the ownership of their business with key employees who are critical to the success of the business.
TE - I - I - 18 IDEA The idea per se is not most important. In entrepreneurship, ideas really are a dime a dozen. Developing the idea implementing it, and building a successful business are the important things. Perhaps the biggest misconception about an idea for a new business is that it must be unique, obsessed with the thought that the idea might be stolen. "Always invest in a grade A man with a grade B idea. Never invest in a grade B man with a grade A idea.“ Georges Doriat
TE - I - I - 19 ENTREPRENEUR, OPPORTUNITY AND RESOURCE
TE - I - I - 20 KEY TO SUCCESS The crucial ingredients for entrepreneurial success are a superb entrepreneur with a first-rate management team and an excellent market opportunity. Would-be entrepreneurs who are unable to name customers are not ready to start a business. They have only found an idea and have not yet identified a market need.
