Who ARE the Entrepreneurs? [Infographic]

The U.S. has long been admired as the hotspot for entrepreneurship and with good reason – 82.5% of entrepreneurs are from the United States. Interestingly, the word itself is a French term coined in the early 19th century, defining “one who undertakes an enterprise, especially a contractor, acting as intermediatory between capital and labour”. Simply put, entrepreneurship is a pursuit of opportunity. A successful entrepreneur is a business designer who has vision, courage, innovative capabilities and the work ethic  and persistence to make things happen.

In my book, entrepreneurs are not limited to those who start businesses. Every organization is peppered with those who have an entrepreneurial mindset. In fact, small business growth REQUIRES this mind-set.

Did you know that a small business in America is defined as a business of 500 or less employees?  Consider these statistics that emphasize the importance of small business in our economy. It is imperative that our nation continues to provide an environment conducive to entrepreneurship and small business. To over-regulate and restrict the ability for small businesses to grow is like cutting off the oxygen supply. Be wise, America.

  • Small business employs about 1/2 of all workers in the U.S.
