General Information

  • What is an entrepreneur? 
    • In French: literally, the person who undertakes to do something, specifically to take risks for the sake of gain. A name given in economic theory to the one who takes the initiative in bringing factors of production, or buyers and sellers, together. He need own nothing to start with, but exerts some control which falls to him by virtue of his initiating role. His return is in the form of profit or loss, rather than wages, rent or interest: i.e. it is fundamentally non-contractual, which is why he is usually seen as ‘taking a risk’.
