What is it about
Entrepreneurship is the process of designing, launching and managing a business. Entrepreneurship includes the ability to come up with a business plan, raise funds, provide leadership and being responsible for the venture's success (or failure). It also entails the ability to market and sell products. Entrepreneurs exist within an ecosystem consisting of other entrepreneurs, their customers, the government, business associations, educators, investors, and lending institutions.
