    In developed countries, small and large companies are full of entrepreneurs. A little more effort by to promote and recognise individuals within companies is more sensible than the somewhat outdated notion of an intelligent individual accepting disproportionate risk with limited business and tax education.

    Competitive advantage is very necessary for a dream to flourish...coz itz the drive that turns the dream into reality.

    Also, enterpreneurs could be born or made...but the made enterpreneurs fair better than the born ones...

    It is dangerous to suggest that entrepreneurs must be persistent. It is a quality often associated with entrepreneurism, but it can also be an Achilles heel. Knowing when to stop, take on board the lessons and adjust strategy accordingly is key. And there is no doubt that this can be learnt.
