An entrepreneur is someone who starts a brand-new business or startup, taking on some degree of financial risk in order to get their company off the ground.
It takes a special type of person to be an entrepreneur, because it requires one to be brave, independent, and perhaps just a “little bit crazy” – as some regular wage earners may say.
Today, the likelihood of someone in Malaysia who can develop universally popular apps such as Waze or Facebook is the same as anywhere else in the world. With the Internet – it only takes one person with a good idea to change the world.
