Learning entrepreneurship is essential for those who are aspiring to start their own business and willing to become an entrepreneur. A holistic business management knowledge is required for entrepreneurs, in addition to specialized skills and characteristics required for entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship expertise is also of great value to people working for different business organizations, as it develops them as ‘intrapreneurs’. An intrapreneur is a person who manages a company’s business as if it is their own, and one who takes the initiative of growing and developing the business along with the related responsibilities and accountability. You can be an intrapreneur at any level and doesn’t require you to be at the top management level only. It is that special characteristic which can help you climb up the organizational ladder from lower-level management to middle-level management, and so on.
The knowledge about entrepreneurship is required for all role profiles where people management is required, mainly – assistant managers, managers, senior managers, team leaders, general managers, executive management officials such as CEO (Chief Executive Officer), CFO (Chief Financial Officer), CTO (Chief Technical Officer) and COO (Chief Operating Officer).
