(Segment is taken from

An entrepreneur is one of the important segments of economic growth. Basically he is a person responsible for setting up a business or an enterprise. In fact he is one who has the initiative, skill for innovation and who looks for high achievements. He is a catalytic agent of change and works for the good of people. He puts up new green field projects that create wealth, open up many employment opportunities and leads to the growth of other sectors.

The word ‘entrepreneur’ is derived from the French verb entreprendre. It means to undertake. In the early 16th century, the Frenchmen who organized and led military expeditions were referred to as entrepreneurs, Around 1700 A.D., the term was used for architects and contractors of public works.

            The term entrepreneur was applied to business initially by the French economist, Caltillon, in the 18th century, designate a dealer who purchases the means of production for combining them into marketable products. Another Frenchman J.B. Say, expanded  Cantillon’s ideas and conceptualized the entrepreneur as an organizer of a business firm, central to its distributive and production functions. Beyond stressing the entrepreneur’s importance to the business, Say did little with his entrepreneurial analysis.

              According to J.B.Say, an entrepreneur is the economic agent who unties all means of production, the labour force of the one and the capital or land of the other and who finds in the value of the products his results from their employment, the reconstitution of the entire capital that he utilizes and the value of the wages, the interest and the rent which he pays as well as profit belonging to himself. He emphasized the functions of co- ordination, organization and supervision. Further, it can be said that the entrepreneur is an organizer and speculator of a business enterprise. The entrepreneur lifts economic resources out of an area of lower into an area of higher productivity and greater.

          The New Encyclopaedia Britannica considers an entrepreneur as " an individual who bears the risk of operating a business in the face of uncertainty about the future condition.

        As professor Jan Tin Bergen points out " The best entrepreneur in any developing country is not necessarily the man who uses much capital, but rather the man who knows how to organize the employment and training of his employees. Whoever concentrates on this is rendering a much more important service to his country than the man who uses huge capital. 

              Joseph A. Schumpeter thus writes " The entrepreneur in an advanced economy is an individual who introduces something new in the economy- a method of production not yet tested by experience in the branch of manufacture concerned, a product with which consumers are not yet familiar, a new source of raw material or of new markets and the like’

          Briefly, an entrepreneur is one who innovates, raises money, assembles inputs, chooses managers and sets the organization going with his ability to identify them. Innovation occurs through (1) the introduction of a new quality in a product (2) a new product(3) a discovery of a fresh demand and a fresh source of supply and (4) by changes in the organization and management.

            New Concept of Entrepreneur – The term entrepreneur has been defined as one who detects and evaluates a new situation in his environment and directs the making of such adjustments in the economic system as he deems necessary. He conceives of an industrial enterprise for the purpose,  displays considerable initiative, grit and determination in bringing his project to fruition and in this process, performs one or more of he following.

Perceives opportunities for profitable investment

Explores the prospects of starting such a manufacturing enterprise

Obtains necessary industrial licenses

Arranges initial capital

Provides personal guarantees to the financial institutions

Promises to meet the shortfalls in the capital and

Supplies technical know-how.

            The term entrepreneur’ is to be understood in its totality and not in a fabricated manner. The term entrepreneur’ can only be understood with a bearing on economic, psychological, sociological and cultural bearings. The social responsibility is essentially a part of entrepreneurial outlook on life.
