The term entrepreneur seems to be one of the most familiar word in the developed nation and even in the developing worlds for centuries to come. With the geometric increase of unemployment in developing nations, this term is something that is quickly embraced by illiterate and literate in order for them to survive and fend for their immediate family. Daile Tucker a world leading entrepreneur defined an entrepreneur as “a person who has decided to take control of his future and become self-employed whether by creating his own unique business or working as a member of a team”. Also, according to Merriam-Webster online an entrepreneur is “one who organizes, manages and assumes the risk of a business or enterprise”. With numerous definition of an entrepreneur or entrepreneurship the major idea is creating value and making financial profit from it.
