Introduction

Entrepreneurship is the process by which individuals pursue opportunities without regard to the resources they currently control (Stevenson’s 1983). Richard Cantillon (circa 1730) says that, Entrepreneurship is defined as self-employment of any sort. Entrepreneurs buy at certain prices in the present and sell at uncertain prices in the future. The entrepreneur is a bearer of uncertainty. Jean Baptiste (1816) state that the entrepreneur is the agent “who unites all means of production and who finds in the value of the products…the reestablishment of the entire capital he employs, and the value of the wages, the interest, and rent which he pays, as well as profits belonging to himself.”

Task 1 Explore and illustrate the range of venture types that might be considered entrepreneurial

P1 Examine different types of entrepreneurial ventures and explain how they relate to the typology of entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship refers to the concept of developing and managing a business venture in order to gain profit by taking several risks in the corporate world.

Types of entrepreneurial ventures:

• Entrepreneurs

• Serial entrepreneurs

• Intrapreneur

• Owner Manager

Entrepreneurs

The term” entrepreneur” is derived from the French verb ‘enterprenedre’. It means “to undertake”.  An entrepreneur is a person who undertakes and operates a new enterprise or venture and assumes some accountability for the inherent risks. The term “entrepreneur” was applied to business initially by the French economist, Cantillon, in the 18th century, to designate a dealer who purchases the means of production form combining them into marketable products.

Serial entrepreneurs

A serial entrepreneur is someone who starts and leads one business after another or, multiple businesses at the same time. This is opposed to an entrepreneur who starts a single business and runs the day-to-day operations of that business until exit or retirement. (Griffiths, 2013)

Intrapreneurs:

Of late a new breed of corporate entrepreneurs has come to the force in large organizations are called as “intrapreneurs”. They are entrepreneurs who catch hold of a new idea for a product, service, or process and work to bring this idea to fruition within the framework of the organization. Intrapreneurs with their innovations and dedicated effort are perceived as a valuable asset by the organization, inspiring others.

Difference between Entrepreneur and Intrapreneur

1. Dependency

An entrepreneur is independent

An intrapreneur is dependent on the entrepreneur.

2. Raising of funds

Entrepreneurs: They can raise fund required for the enterprise

Intrapreneurs: Funds are not raised

3. Risk

Entrepreneurs: He/She bears the risk involved in the business

An intrapreneur does not fully bear the risk

4. Operations

Entrepreneurs: He/She operates from outside

Intrapreneurs: He/She operates from within the organization itself

Owner Manager

This is a person who establishes and manages an enterprise for the principal purpose of furthering his or her personal goals. The enterprise is the primary source of income and consumes the majority of the owner-manager’s time and resources. She or he exercises significant control over the day-to-day operations of his or her business.

Distinction between an Entrepreneur and a Manager

Factors

Entrepreneur

Manager

1. Motive

The main motive is to start a venture by setting up an enterprise. He understands the venture for his personal gratification.

The main motive of a manager is to render his services in an enterprise already set up by someone else

2.Status

He is the owner of enterprise

A manger is the servant in the enterprise owned by the entrepreneur

3. Risk bearing

He being the owner of the enterprise assumes all risks and uncertainty involved in running the enterprise

A manager as a servant does not bear any risk involved in the enterprise

4. Rewards

The reward that he gets for bearing risks involved in the enterprise is profit which is highly uncertain

A manager gets salary as reward for the services rendered by him in the enterprise, which is fixed and certain

5. Innovation

He himself thinks over what and how to produce goods to meet then changing demands of the customers. Hence, he acts as an innovator also called a change agent

Manager simply executes the plan prepared by the entrepreneur and translates the entrepreneur’s ideas into practice.

Entrepreneurial activities

The entrepreneur is always a speculator.  He deals with the uncertain conditions of the future.  His success or failure depends on the correctness of his anticipation of uncertain events.  If he fails in his understanding of things to come he is doomed…

(von Mises, 1949/1996)

P2 Explore the similarities and differences between entrepreneurial ventures.

“Entrepreneurship is the ability to recognize the bigger picture, find where there’s an opportunity to make someone’s life better, design hypotheses around these opportunities, and continually test your assumptions. It’s experimentation: Some experiments will work; many others will fail. It is not big exits, huge net worth or living a life of glamour. It’s hard work and persistence to leave the world a better place once your time here is done.” – Konrad Billetz, CEO of Frameri

For a better understanding of the similarities and differences between entrepreneurial ventures the following chart will be useful.

Type of firm: Small Business

Definition: An independently-owned and -operated for-profit enterprise that is not dominant in its field

Goal: Grow into a long-term business that is profitable and sustainable, with possibility of eventual sale to an employee or hand over to a family member

Kind of Business: Restaurants; retail stores; construction firms; agriculture

Capital Providers: Micro-loans; bank loans; revenue; friends, family and personal funds

Outcomes: Small businesses can generate payroll taxes and jobs, but are not large employers. They provide products and services that are necessary parts of a city’s infrastructure, as well as leisure goods and retail.              Type of Firm: Scalable Startup (Innovation-Led or High Growth Tech Company)

Definition: Young, innovation-focused firms with the potential to create a new market or dramatically change an existing market via proprietary, technology-based products or services

Goal: Company is built to scale with the goal of generating significant wealth for founder and investors, either through an acquisition or an IPO

Kind of Business: A company producing medical devices or developing life-saving medicine; IT companies developing B2B software or apps; cleantech-geared firms

Capital Providers: Risk capital (accelerators, venture capital, angel investment); non-dilutive capital (government grants, SBIR/STTR); friends, family and personal funds

Outcomes: Startups have the potential to create significant revenue, jobs and economic impact.

Type of Firm: Large Business

Definition: An established firm that employs at least 500 people

Goal: Generating substantial revenue and profit for the company and its shareholders Kind of Business: Corporations (e.g., General Electric, AT&T, General Motors) Capital Providers: Revenue; tax credits; subsidiaries

Outcomes: Large companies are a significant employer in the community. Tend to be recognizable anchors/major brands with an established reputation and community presence              Type of Firm: Social Good Organizations/Businesses

Definition: Businesses built on innovative solutions and a desire to make the world a better place.

Goal: Maximizing impact in a sustainable way

Kind of Business: A company working to solve global health issues; a company solving specific problems in developing countries; nonprofits with a philanthropic mission.

Capital Providers: Depends on the type and size of company; can run the entire capital continuum

Outcomes: Has the potential to create significant social impact and improve lives

Similarities and differences between entrepreneurial ventures

Small Business vs Scalable Startup vs Social Good organization vs Large Business

Small business vs Scalable Startup

Large Business vs Social good enterprises Similarities

In both cases, some capital providers can be the same like friends, family and personal funds;

Another similarities between them is that they are both companies which generate jobs;

Another similarities between these two ventures is to create significant social impacts and improve lives;

The similarity between these two is that they have a social impact;

Differences

Each of them has a different kind of business, for example Small Business are restaurants, retail stores, with other words these are kind of business that can be hand over from generation to generation, on the other hand, Scalable Startup are kind of companies which produces medical devices or some IT companies which develops software’s or apps and the purpose of these business are to produce a benefit for the foundered investors;

The goal for each of them is different, for large business the principal goal is to employ many people and to generate revenue and profit and the goal for social enterprise is to make the world a better place

An entrepreneur is “one who organizes, manages and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.” Types of entrepreneurial ventures are:

• Small Businesses ;

• Lifestyle Businesses ;

• Social Good Organisation/Businesses;

• Large Enterprises ;

• Scalable Startup ;

• Second Stage ;

Small Business Entrepreneurship

Small businesses are grocery stores, hairdressers, consultants, travel agents, internet commerce storefronts, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, etc. They are anyone who runs his/her own business. They hire local employees or family. Most are barely profitable. Their definition of success is to feed the family and make a profit, not to take over an industry or build a $100 million business. As they can’t provide the scale to attract venture capital, they fund their businesses via friends/family or small business loans. (Casnocha, 2011) However, the term small business has no single definition, Scarborough & Zimmer (2007) state that the term small business refers to a business that is independently owned and operated, is not dominant in its field of operation, and meets certain standards of size in terms of employees or annual receipts.

Scalable Startup Entrepreneurship

Unlike small business, these entrepreneurs start a company knowing from day one that their vision could change the world. They attract investment from equally crazy financial investors – venture capitalists. They hire the best and the brightest. Their job is to search for a repeatable and scalable business model.  When they find it, their focus on scale requires even more venture capital to fuel rapid expansion. (Casnocha, 2011)

Large Company Entrepreneurship

Large companies have finite life cycles. Most grow through sustaining innovation, offering new products that are variants around their core products. Changes in customer tastes, new technologies, legislation, new competitors, etc. can create pressure for more disruptive innovation – requiring large companies to create entirely new products sold into new customers in new markets. Existing companies do this by either acquiring innovative companies or attempting to build a disruptive product inside. Ironically, large company size and culture make disruptive innovation extremely difficult to execute. (Casnocha, 2011)

Social Entrepreneurship

Social entrepreneurs are innovators who focus on creating products and services that solve social needs and problems. But unlike scalable startups their goal is to make the world a better place, not to take market share or to create to wealth for the founders. They may be nonprofit, for-profit, or hybrid. (Casnocha, 2011)

M1 Investigate a diverse range of entrepreneurial ventures to demonstrate an understanding of entrepreneurship in both the public and corporate sector.

According to Surbhi (2015), the days are gone, when only the Public Sector was prevalent in the economy. At present, many countries have adopted the policy of Privatisation, through which Private Sector is also gaining importance. For the progress and development of any country, both the sectors must go hand in hand as only one sector cannot lead the country in the path of success. The private sector comprises of business which is owned, managed and controlled by individuals. On the contrary, public sector comprises of various business enterprises owned and managed by Government. Such organizations are either fully or partly owned by the center or state and come under the separate ministry. Some of the public sector organizations are set up by a special act of Parliament.

Comparisons of entrepreneurs as independent entrepreneurs, corporate entrepreneurs and public sector entrepreneurs identified differences and similarities across the dimensions of primary motive, time orientation, skills, attitudes, focus, approaches to risks and failures and courage in the face of ambiguity (Morris & Jones 1999). More recently Kearney, Hisrich & Roche (2009) compared entrepreneurship in public and private organisations, defining public sector entrepreneurship as the process within the public sector organization “that results in innovative activities such as the development of new and existing services, technologies, administrative techniques, and new improved strategies, risk taking and proactivity” (Kearney et al. 2009). These authors also propose that entrepreneurship within the public sector produces superior organizational performance. Other authors who argue that all managers are expected to engage in entrepreneurial management regardless of context (Drucker, 1985; Stevenson & Jarillo, 1990), would expect to find managers in the public sector engaging in entrepreneurial behaviour as both deliberate and emergent strategies (Mintzberg & Waters, 1985). The importance of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial management in the public sector is an area of growing interest as public sector organisations at all levels face continual tightened resource constraints. In dynamic complex contexts, organisations often need to generate new economic activity for survival. Under conditions of resource constraint, entrepreneurial strategies are potential responses to environments that are open to or tolerant of responsiveness to both opportunistic creation and discovery of opportunities (Alvarez & Barney, 2007).

Private Sector is actually business organizations that owned and run in private individuals.(Heseltine, 2013) There are various types of business in private sector, like Sole Proprietor, Partnership, Limited Companies, Cooperatives, Franchise, and Charities. In spite of various types of these, but actually their aim was almost the same just they did it in different ways. The main reason of all these business is to earn profit and increase their market’s shares. Sole Proprietor is the easiest and oldest type of business that can start with a low cost capital, for example doctors, mechanics, beauticians and etc. This is an individually owned business, it is a type of business which owned and run by one owner. The owner normally is the boss and the worker; they can also employ others or even work in their own business. The owner can make their own decision without discuss with any other partner, it is fast and more efficient. They earn more profits compare to other type of business but oppose this benefits they must also take all the responsible, losses and risks alone. In sole proprietor, there are two type of liability: the unlimited liability and the limited liability. The unlimited liability is more important, the owner’s business assets and his personal assets will be owned by the creditors when the business faces financial losses. Unlike limited liability, the shareholders only liable for the amount that they invested but not their personal owned assets.

This provides creating certain opportunity in the areas of markets by huge opening of the marketing field for the new start up organization (Griffiths and Wall, 2011). Moreover, micro and small business provides huge opportunity in creating opportunities for employment among the people in U.K. The rise of small-scale business implements new ideas that assist in encouraging the rate of competition with the other companies. In U.K, nearly 99% of business is formed with the help of small and micro business. The opening of new small and micro business contributes the maximum amount of market formation and increase the competition rate of market (Martin and Sunley, 2014). This would increase the economy of the country especially in U.K. The growth of micro and small business reduces the rate of unemployment among the people of U.K. The minimum rate of employment in the small medium enterprises contributes nearly about 14.6 million among which 50% belongs to the private companies in U.K. Most importantly, at the time of starting of small business, there requires employee contributing both skilled and unskilled staffs. However, the small and micro business is less complex as compared with medium business. Hence, the managements find it easier to handle the small business and thus increase the rate of production of the company.

Task4 Investigate the different ambiences that foster or hinder entrepreneurship.

P7 Investigating the ability of context and experience to foster or hinder entrepreneurship supported by relevant examples

The principal purpose of entrepreneurship is to discern the entrepreneurial occasion and eventually explore the opportunities embedded in it. The ability to evaluate and exploit information can be considered as one of the crucial traits an entrepreneur must possess along with a sincere vigilance which enables the entrepreneur to interpret relevant data in some inescapable circumstances (Carraher, 2015). The entrepreneur’s efficiency can be judged on the grounds of prerequisite knowledge which, according to some research scholars, may be derived from educational background, individual intellect and previous workplace realizations, or may be processed from the empirical perception of the domain (Ramadani et al. 2015). The desired personality characteristics of an entrepreneur can be summarized into three broad traits which is termed as ‘Big Three’ by several scholars of this field and they are Need for Achievement, Locus of Command and Risk-taking Propensity respectively (The other approaches in varying dimensions of traits are excluded). The Need for Achievement can be expressed as a sustainable trait, which is obtained from aiming and accomplishing self-declared tasks of higher levels of merit. Though this trait is usually conceptualized as a stable one, recent articles suggest that the trait evolves in accordance with the advancement of information gain. Moreover, efficient entrepreneurs usually seek excellence-intensive occasions, which are typically aligned with complicated liabilities, moderate risk-taking, prudent anticipation of business performances and potential possibilities. In this aspect, achievement of challenging business pursuit’s turns out is more satisfactory as compared to financial gain to a certain section of entrepreneurs. The theory of locus control introduces several perspectives at the entrepreneur’s ability to process occasional information in order to analyze the social context. The locus of command is a potent index of business expectations and success, which can be classified into internal and external of an individual (Karatas Ozkan et al. 2014). Owner and managers of an enterprise typically exercises a profound internal locus of command as it was integrally attached with entrepreneurial features where the collaboration reflects considerable innovations having more potential and discretion. The external locus of command, whereas, can be considered as an avowal to passivity since it hinders academic pursuits and actions mostly rely on chances or destiny. Risk-taking can be reckoned as a significant feature since it distinguishes non -entrepreneurs and managers from entrepreneurs. The ability of the entrepreneur to calculate the assigned risks depends on the age, motivation, and prevalent business experiences where they exploit the risks as stimuli of their business venture. Most significantly, the risk-taking propensity is associated with need for achievement where the risks determine the capability of the entrepreneur to deal with improvised decisions (Piperopoulos and Dimov, 2015). Some of the decadent civilizations reflect a regressive attitude towards the essence of entrepreneurship since they were conditioned to share their earned wealth among the members of the community and family instead of enjoying it. There are simulating studies, which concludes cultural and social reinforcement as cardinal factors for ‘need achievement’ by altering the conventional factors such as parental influence.
