The word “Entrepreneurship” has been mentioned a lot, but now there is no authoritative explanation?

We also often communicate with each university, some universities explain “Entrepreneurship” is to seize the opportunity, to grasp the opportunity, to use a capacity. This issue, I had talked about it with the global entrepreneurship Federation President Matthews for the whole of more than 2 hours, when I visited their university in2009.

Finally, we reached a consensus: Entrepreneurship is a new business model created by entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial organizations, which creates new high-tech products and transforms them into the most efficient social and economic values.

Entrepreneurship is a process; it is the process of the entrepreneur or entrepreneurial organizations activities. First of all, one is entrepreneurs, and the other is entrepreneurial organizations. And secondly is the creation of new business models and new high-tech products, such as intelligent technology is a new high-tech.

Finally, entrepreneurship is the process of transforming entrepreneurial achievements into the most productive forces or producing the most efficient social and economic values.

Above is my understanding of the concept of “entrepreneurship.”
