Entrepreneurship (ENT)
FCC LTC OCC WVC 
Program Overview:
Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new organizations or revitalizing mature organizations, particularly new businesses generally in response to identified opportunities. Entrepreneurial activities are substantially different depending on the type of organization that is being started. Entrepreneurship ranges in scale from solo projects (involving the entrepreneur as only part-tie) to major undertakings creating many job opportunities.

Entrepreneurs develop new markets; they can create customers or buyers; they discover new sources of materials; they mobilize capital resources, which in economic terms these represent machines, buildings, and other physical productive resources; they introduce new technologies, new industries and new products intended to satisfy human needs; and they create employment. The largest employer is the private business sector.
