The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.
— Peter Drucker entrepreneurs quote
An entrepreneur assumes the risk and is dedicated and committed to the success of whatever he or she undertakes.
— Victor Kiam
But economic recovery must be earned. And it will be earned by entrepreneurs and it will be earned by small businesses.
— Jon Huntsman, Jr.

— entrepreneurs quotation by James L. Hayes
Entrepreneurial profit is the expression of the value of what the entrepreneur contributes to production.
Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.
An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he'll quickly learn how to chew it.
An entrepreneur is someone who jumps off a cliff, and builds a plane on his way down.
Successful entrepreneurs find the balance between listening to their inner voice and staying persistent in driving for success - because sometimes success is waiting right across from the transitional bump that's disguised as failure.
We got government off the backs of the people of India, particularly off the backs of India's entrepreneurs. We introduced more competition, both internal competition and external competition. We simplified and rationalized the tax system. We made risk-taking much more attractive.
I wanted to be an editor or a journalist, I wasn't really interested in being an entrepreneur, but I soon found I had to become an entrepreneur in order to keep my magazine going.
Entrepreneur = someone who jumps off a cliff and builds a plane on the way down.
Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
Everyone can tell you the risk. An entrepreneur can see the reward.
From my very first day as an entrepreneur, I've felt the only mission worth pursuing in business is to make people's lives better.
The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something.
It's as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.
The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and an actualizer.
.. He can visualize something, and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen.
INNOVATION is the specific tool of entrepreneurs, the means by which they exploit change as an opportunity for a different business or a different service. It is capable of being presented as a discipline, capable of being learned, capable of being practiced. Entrepreneurs need to search purposefully for the sources of innovation, the changes and their symptoms that indicate opportunities for successful innovation. And they need to know and to apply the principles of successful innovation.
I'm uncomfortable when I'm comfortable.
I have to start something new-in the agency or in my personal life-every two years or so. Taking risks gives me energy. I can't help it, it's my personality. I'd like to think it's not really a compulsion toward high risks, but the spirit of an entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs are risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputation on the line in support of an idea or enterprise. They willingly assume responsibility for the success or failure of a venture and are answerable for all its facets. The buck not only stops at their desks, it starts there too.
Thus will the fondest dream of Phallic science be realized: a pristine new planet populated entirely by little boy clones of great scientific entrepreneurs free to smash atoms, accelerate particles, or, if they are so moved, build pyramids -- without any social relevance or human responsibility at all.
If you're talking about entrepreneurs in conflict and post-conflict settings, then you must talk about women, because they are the population you have left.
Jobs are a priority for every country.
Doing more to improve regulation and help entrepreneurs is the key to creating jobs - and more growth.
I've been acting since I was 10. My dad was an entrepreneur, so I guess something along those lines. I wouldn't want a 9-5 job.
We will have bigger bureaucracies, bigger labor unions, and bigger state-run corporations. It will be harder to be an entrepreneur because of punitive taxes and regulations. The rewards of success will be expropriated for the sake of attaining greater income equality.
The thing that fascinates me is that the way I came to film and television is extinct. Then there were gatekeepers, it was prohibitively expensive to make a film, to be a director you had to be an entrepreneur to raise money.
Great entrepreneurs focus intensely on an opportunity where others see nothing.
This focus and intensity helps to eliminate wasted effort and distractions. Most companies die from indigestion rather than starvation, i.e., companies suffer from doing too many things at the same time rather than doing too few things very well.
We are a mixed economy. We will remain a mixed economy. The public and private sector will continue to play a very important role. The private sector in our country has very ample scope and I am confident that India's entrepreneurs have the capacity, and the will to rise to the occasion.
We worked personally with a lot of great VCs.
They just work incredibly hard at supporting entrepreneurs and their companies.
Most great entrepreneurs I know are nothing like the other kids.
They're almost like tangent lines - those lines that seem to go nowhere. Nothing connects them, until they get out in the real world. Then they connect just fine.
I wanted to be a 150% entrepreneur and a 150% mom, and I found that I was having a very hard time doing both. I was about 75% and 75% - still better than 100%, but not what I was accustomed to at work.
But as an entrepreneur you have to feel like you can jump out of an aeroplane because you're confident that you'll catch a bird flying by. It's an act of stupidity, and most entrepreneurs go splat because the bird doesn't come by, but a few times it does.
My son is now an 'entrepreneur.' That's what you're called when you don't have a job.
My father, one of the great entrepreneurs and philanthropists of this state, taught me that capital - monetary or political - is to be used to benefit others. I intend to continue that tradition.
When I finished school, I took my entire life savings - $5,000 - and invested it in a business. I was young. I was inexperienced. But I was an entrepreneur, and I was proud. And in six weeks, I was broke.
The link between my experience as an entrepreneur and that of a politician is all in one word: freedom.
