What is an Entrepreneur?

"An entrepreneur is not necessarily a risk taker, but a risk reducer. Each day at work, the entrepreneur seeks to make decisions to increase the longevity of the business and diminish the risk.

"And yet, herein lies a paradox. For an entrepreneur, lack of growth (and uncertainty) is like death. When things start becoming too predictable, the challenge ebbs away. It is then time for a new dream, a new vision."

Rajesh Jain (founder of India's first portal and its first web services company).

"An entrepreneur to me just means someone who thinks out of the box and they’re on a different beam. 1 + 1 doesn’t equal 2. 1 + 1 equals 5 to them, somehow.

Michael Crooke, President & CEO, Patagonia, Inc.
