A modern company can be judged first of all by the Entrepreneur SVG. An entrepreneur is an initiative person who takes responsibility and risk for the business in the company. In order to understand the essence of his activity, it is necessary to consider all types of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship can be classified on two grounds: the scale and nature of the activity.
1. According to the scale, the initiative activities are divided into the following types:
Individual entrepreneurship – any creative activity of one person and his or her family (shops, small pharmacies, dry cleaners, etc.).
Collective Entrepreneurship – A team is doing a useful job. It includes small and medium business (in the U.S. small business includes enterprises with up to 500 employees, in our country – with a much smaller number of employees); large business – usually a huge joint stock company with thousands of people.
2. Entrepreneur SVG work has several forms by nature. Non-commercial entrepreneurship is not related to the sale of products for enrichment. Such charitable activities are carried out by cultural and educational and other organizations.
- Commercial activity, or business is an income-generating activity. It includes:
- Non-production business – professional sports, concert activities, etc.
- Trade business – at trade enterprises
- Services business, e.g. travel services, law firms
- Production business – profitable business at enterprises in industry, agriculture, construction, etc.
Entrepreneurship can manifest itself in any economic system. It can also be at a state enterprise. However, the initiative of the head of the firm is limited here by the strict framework of orders and instructions of higher authorities. In market conditions, success brings a completely different type of business. Just as every person needs oxygen, so the freedom of economic activity is important for the businessman, i.e. the opportunity to use the property belonging to him, rented or transferred for use, the freedom to determine what and how to produce, to choose suppliers and consumers, to set prices, to dispose of the profit left after payment of taxes, and to solve other production issues.
In recent decades, the privatization of state-owned enterprises and the growth of production in the West have significantly expanded entrepreneurial activity. Compared to the 1960s, the total number of businessmen has doubled in Japan and more than doubled in the United States.
Numerical growth of the founders of new economic affairs is combined with the increasing role of the functions performed by business organizers.
