CMI Unit 711 Entrepreneurial Practice

Entrepreneurial practice is a multi-dimensional concept. To some it is simply the pursuit of an opportunity; to others it could be an innovative business start-up, an invention or re-invention of a product, service or a process or the development of solutions to social, cultural or environmental issues. At its core entrepreneurialism or entrepreneurial action is a mind-set. Entrepreneurial practice covers several different perspectives; economic, management, sociology and psychology.
