Entrepreneurship Community

Welcome to the JAAGNet Community for Entrepreneurship.

“Entrepreneurship” is the act of creating and building a business with the aim of eventually turning it into a profitable venture, be it a brick-and mortar business, tech startup or launching a new product or service. It’s about building on your dreams and leading them in the direction you desire, being your own boss, no restrictive time schedules but to be successful requires dedication, hard work and sleepless nights and even with all this it still can be a treacherous venture as many start-up businesses fail for various reasons, e.g. lack of capital, market demand, poor management decisions.

Let’s start with a definition:

/ˌäntrəprəˈnərˌSHip/

 Noun: Entrepreneurship

  1. the activity of setting up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.

"the new business opportunities have encouraged entrepreneurship on a grand scale"
