What is entrepreneurship?

The Webster Dictionary defines the word "Entrepreneurship" as the activity of organizing, managing, and assuming the risks of a business enterprise.

It is important note that entrepreneurship is far more than just startups. Entrepreneurship happens in the context of standalone startups (whether they raise external capital or not), in non-profits, in large and small established businesses, in government and the military. Entrepreneurship is everywhere.
