Powerful Essays
1. Introduction

Entrepreneurship can be described as “The capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit. The most obvious example of entrepreneurship is the starting of new businesses.”(businessdictionary.com, 2014)
