5 Entrepreneurs versus Small Business Owners: A Distinction Small Businesses OwnersManage their businesses by expecting stable sales, profits, and growthEntrepreneursFocus their efforts on innovation, profitability and sustainable growth
6 The Evolution of Entrepreneurship Entrepreneur is derived from the French entreprendre, meaning “to undertake.”The entrepreneur is one who undertakes to organize, manage, and assume the risks of a business.Although no single definition of entrepreneur exists and no one profile can represent today’s entrepreneur, research is providing an increasingly sharper focus on the subject.
8 Entrepreneurship: A Mindset Entrepreneurship is more than the mere creation of business:Seeking opportunitiesTaking risks beyond securityHaving the tenacity to push an idea through to realityEntrepreneurship is an integrated concept that permeates an individual’s business in an innovative manner.
9 A Summary Description of Entrepreneurship Entrepreneurship (Robert C. Ronstadt)The dynamic process of creating incremental wealth.This wealth is created by individuals who assume major risks in terms of equity, time, and/or career commitment of providing value for a product or service.The product or service itself may or may not be new or unique but the entrepreneur must somehow infuse value by securing and allocating the necessary skills and resources.
10 An Integrated Definition EntrepreneurshipA dynamic process of vision, change, and creation.Requires an application of energy and passion towards the creation and implementation of new ideas and creative solutions.Essential ingredients include:The willingness to take calculated risks—in terms of time, equity, or career.The ability to formulate an effective venture team; the creative skill to marshal needed resources.The fundamental skills of building a solid business plan.The vision to recognize opportunity where others see chaos, contradiction, and confusion.
11 EntrepreneurshipEntrepreneurship is important: engine of economic growth, creates wealth, generates innovations & job opportunities, increases income & living standard of the society etc.Entrepreneurship is the main source of rezeki – “9/10 of the ‘rezeki’ comes from the business activities” – Muhammad SAW.
12 EntrepreneurshipKnowing its importance, developing entrepreneurship becomes a priority to every government through out the world.Great number of support programs are created. (Loan & financing schemes, consultation, tax incentives, provision of affordable premises & good infra, R&D for commercialization, biz info centres, incubators, training & education, trade fairs & promotions local and abroad etc.
13 Support ProgramsMalaysia - arrays of support schemes & programs were initiated & implemented. At least 15 ministries & more than 60 government agencies were promoting & providing assistance to potential or existing entrepreneurs (M.Khairuddin,’07)
14 Becoming an entrepreneur? Despite the promotions & supports, not many wanted entrepreneurship to be their career of choice.Even among educated citizens, the rate of entrepreneurship is low. Studies: only 1.2% of graduates started up their own businesses & now many are still unemployed.
15 Why not? Not Willing to Take Risk Financial risk Career risk—loss of employment securityFamily & social risk—competing commitments of work & familyPsychic risk—psychological & mental impact of failure on the well-being of entrepreneursPhysical risk – become sick, too much of hard work
16 Other Major Barriers limited access of finance regulations & bureaucracy, delay in obtaining licenses, permits, approvals, taxes & compliance costs associated with government legislationlack of biz idea/market awareness
17 Other Major Barriers Lack of information Lack of skills & experience Lack of support networks, absence of business contacts & mentoring impede biz start-ups, especially to the small, new & inexperienced firmsFear of intense competition
18 Other Major BarriersEntrepreneurship & self-employment are not always valued traits to every culture or society (Harding, Cowling & Ream, 2003); (Likanen & Mira, 2004).Negative attitudes to entrepreneurship, culture of pessimism & parents not supportive of entrepreneurship are significant barriers to start-ups
19 Other Major Barriers Lack of motivation & confidence Perceiving starting up a biz as involving too much ‘hassle’, ‘stress’ & ‘hard work’Fear of debt & failureFuture uncertainty, too risky!

53 THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURS (10 DS) DreamEntrepreneurs have a vision of what the future could be like for them and their business. And , more important, they have the ability to implement their dreams.DecisivenessThey don’t procrastinate. They make decisions swiftly. Their swiftness is a key factor in their success.
54 DoersOnce they decide on a course of action, they implement it as quickly as possible.DeterminationThey implement their ventures with total commitment. They seldom give up, even when confronted by obstacles that seem insurmountable.
55 DedicationThey 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.DevotionsEntrepreneurs 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.
56 DetailsIt is said that the devils 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.DestinyThey want to be in charge of their own destiny rather than dependent on an employer
57 Entrepreneurs in the United States Reasons for the exceptional entrepreneurial activity in the U.S. include:A national culture that supports risk taking and seeking opportunities.Americans’ alertness to unexploited economic opportunity and a low fear of failure.U.S. leadership in entrepreneurship education at both the undergraduate and graduate level.A high percentage of individuals with professional, technological or business degrees who are likely to become entrepreneurs.
58 The Age of Gazelles A “Gazelle” Gazelles as leaders in innovation: A business establishment with at least 20% sales growth in each year for five years, starting with a base of at least $100,000 in annual sales.Gazelles as leaders in innovation:Produce twice as many product innovations per employee as do larger firms.Have been responsible for 55% of the innovations in 362 different industries and 95% of all radical innovations.Obtain more patents per sales dollar than do larger firms.
59 Table 1.3 Mythology Associated with Gazelles Gazelles are the goal of all entrepreneurs.Gazelles receive venture capital.Gazelles were never mice.Gazelles are high-tech.Gazelles are global.Source: NFIB Small Business Policy Guide (Washington, D.C., November 2000), 31.
60 Survival of Gazelles How many gazelles survive? The simple answer is “none.” Sooner or later, all companies wither and die.The Common Myth of Failure:85% of all firms fail in the first year—in actuality, about half of all start-ups last between 5 and 7 years.
61 Entrepreneurial Firms’ Impact Entrepreneurial components of the U.S. Economy:Large firms have increased profitability by returning to their “core competencies through restructuring and downsizing.New entrepreneurial companies have been blossoming in new technologies and new markets.Thousands of smaller firms established by women, minorities, and immigrants have strengthened the economy.
62 Entrepreneurial Firms’ Impact Cont’d) Entrepreneurial firms make two indispensable contributions to an economy:They are an integral part of the renewal process that pervades and defines market economies.They are the essential mechanism by which millions enter the economic and social mainstream of society.
