Entrepreneurship is a way of thinking, reasoning, risk taking, and leading. Successful entrepreneurs find creative ways to identify opportunities and unmet needs of customers.

Keeping a close eye on profitability, optimum resource utilization, and exploiting market opportunities are key traits that successful entrepreneurs must hone in to create profitable and growing businesses.

This program has been designed for executives to exhibit what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. It shows participants how to identify business opportunities, enter new markets, launch new products and services, and craft high growth business strategies successfully.
