Understanding what the entrepreneur risks are not black and white. Before getting into the risks associated with being an entrepreneur a brief historical perspective of what it means to be an entrepreneur is needed.

A country’s economy has many things that will determine it’s economic well-being. There are too many factors to be listed here, but one of the main contributing factors is entrepreneurship! Traditionally, entrepreneurial ability tended to be defined by the following four attributes:

  • Initiative – The entrepreneur takes the initiative to bring together all the resources required for the business venture. Land, labor, and capital to turn the idea into production and turn the idea into a viable business opportunity.
  • Decision-making – This is how the course of the business enterprise is set. The entrepreneur makes all the decisions to create a basic business policy.
  • Innovation – This is how the entrepreneur introduces new products and/or ways of doing things to the market.
  • Risk-taker – This is self-explanatory. The entrepreneur risks his or her time, effort, business reputation and funds on the entrepreneurial venture.

There are many types of entrepreneurs, All of which face different challenges and risks.
