ntrepreneurship is not only the latest business buzzword in conventional organizations and a wide range of startup businesses, entrepreneurship is a hot and exciting new business concept. The newness is that entrepreneurship has caught on, gone mainstream and achieved bona fide legitimacy. The business world and academia now embrace and value entrepreneurship. “We may not have called it that until about 10 years ago, when most institutions were offering enterprise MBAs, but the concept has been around for generations,” explains the upbeat and plugged-in Kimberley Neutens, director of the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Haskayne School of Business. “It’s basically the process of identifying an opportunity (innovation), what resources are available (human and financial) to bring the product or the service to market.” No surprise that it has become a much-in-demand and vital component of the business school curriculum.
