An entrepreneur is a person who organizes, operates, and assumes the risk for a business venture. Entrepreneurship is a broad term that can include any small business to planting the seed for a future mammoth of a firm.

It takes an entrepreneurial spirit to succeed in business so many schools now offer this as a specialization. However, for many years, individuals felt the need to get away from school to test their ventures out on the real world. One of the more prominent examples is Michael Dell.

Increasingly, business school has served as a perfect playground for ideas to be tested and tried before they are commercialized. Top search engine Google is one example. Entrepreneurship allows individuals to launch their ventures as much as it helps corporate employees stand out within a firm, department or team.
