Abstract

The word “entrepreneurship”, despite its universal prevalence today, was a relatively new term that entered common lexicon only a few decades ago. Yet, there is no denying the role that entrepreneurs play in creating wealth, not merely for themselves, but also opportunities and welfare for large swathes of the populace, benefitting the overall economy. At a recent talk, Carl J. Schramm, president and CEO of the Kaufmann Foundation, reinforces the case for entrepreneurship and debunks some common views on who “entrepreneurs” are.
