Definition of entrepreneurship:

Economists do not have a fixed definition of entrepreneurship or “entrepreneur”, and the word “entrepreneur” comes from the French verb, “entreprendre” meaning “to undertake. Although the concept of an entrepreneur has existed and been known for centuries, classical and neo-classical economists have left entrepreneurs outside their official models: they assumed that full information would be known to rational actors in full, leaving no room for risk or discovery. Economists until the middle of the 20th century were not seriously trying to integrate entrepreneurship into their models.

Intention is essential, Self confidence, Modesty, knowledgeable, Accept failure, Risk-taking, Enthusiasm, Flexibility.
