An entrepreneur is an individual who has identified a need in the marketplace and has come up with an innovative business idea to fill that need. Entrepreneurs are willing to take on the many risks of implementing their idea, and to also take on the role as leader of their company or organization. They assume full responsibility for the execution, success, or failure of the business. Entrepreneurs develop, design, produce, market, and eventually sell businesses with the end goal of financial profit. There are entrepreneurs behind every business in the country, no matter what the size and scope.
