Entrepreneur is  someone who exercises initiative by organizing a venture to take benefit of an opportunity and as the decision maker decides what, how, and how much of good or service will be produced.

An entrepreneur supplies risk capital as a risk taker, and monitors and controls the business activities. The entrepreneur is usually a sole proprietor. a partner, or the one who owns the majority of shares in an incorporated venture.
