18 Entrepreneurship – Rui Baptista
“Entrepreneur” is someone who engages in the creation of a new business with the aim of achieving success, growth and profits A large self-employment rate (i.e. high percentage of small businesses) does not mean a country is highly entrepreneurial: Many people become self-employed through acquisition and by joining the family business Many people become self-employed out of necessity, i.e. due to the lack of a better income-generating alternative Entrepreneurship – Rui Baptista

19 Entrepreneurship – a way of thinking, reasoning, acting
The heart of the process is the creation and/or recognition of opportunities It requires the willingness to take calculated risks Entrepreneurship can occur, of fail to occur, in firms that are old and new, small and large Entrepreneurship involves continued renewal The classic expression of entrepreneurship is the start-up company Entrepreneurship – Rui Baptista
