Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship, entrepreneur are words that were rarely used 20 years ago. They have become buzzwords lately.

The dictionary says, an entrepreneur is a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk. Here we talk about what is needed to become a successful one. We also talk to entrepreneurs and listen to their stories. And, most of all, try to learn from the lessons they've learned along the way.
