Definition of Enterprise?

There are lots of them and most of them are not very helpful.

No, not SEOs.  Definitions of enterprise.

At the moment this is my favourite:

Enterprise  – something, anything, you do intentionally that you believe will help to shape the world more to your liking.

This then makes enterprise a function of your power to shape the world and your self interest – rightly understood and negotiated.


What is your favourite definition of enterprise?

Prizes for the best!

    My definition of enterprise or enterprising follows;

    An individual who uses their initiative and drive to make things happen; having taken into account and managed risks along the way to make improvements to the status quo.

      Cheers Peter. Nice one. Just need to define initiative and drive now! Like the ‘improvements to the status quo’ line especially!

    the enterprise cocktail:
    willingness to take risks,
    the ability to see the consequences of one’s own actions, and
    the willingness and ability to come up with new solutions

    My definition of enterprise is the solution proffered by an entrepreneur to a problem identified by her/him based on practical knowledge and skills available to her/him without minding the risks involved,
