I read a great definition of an entrepreneur last evening and one I’ve not heard before - "an entrepreneur is like a composer, they see something no one else does. And, to help them create it from nothing, they surround themselves with world-class performers" - Steve Blank, a Silicon Valley serial-entrepreneur and academician. I thought this was a really interesting analogy as it speaks to the heart of what entrepreneurs do. They have a vision for something they are trying to create; they bring in like-minded people with unique skills-sets who can help them to bring that vision to life; and they are prepared to plunge themselves and everyone around them into the unknown, breaking new ground to make their innovative vision a tangible reality and one that connects with the rest of the world. Just like composers, entrepreneurs are rare, unique and perhaps a little crazy at times, but they have the ability to create things that others can only dream about. That’s what separates entrepreneurs from everyone else.
