Good point Paul Garcia
. \What's an entrepreneur?
The old, "I know it when I see it" is pretty sloppy. I'm a reluctant entrepreneur, and lousy at most of it. I'm motivated by the responsibility to create, not for personal reasons.
The standard methodology in science is first to survey entrepreneurs and categorize the different types of skills, personalities, backgrounds, motivations and the cultures they come out of. And probably much more. 'Like Kinsey did for sex. Until that study was done, no one even knew what they were studying. And they didn't know that they didn't know.
I find this in politics. For 90% of people in politics, their knowledge comes out of experience and mentoring in the current paradigm. Maybe another 9% add a rich knowledge of some history (I have no idea about the actual numbers.) A few political scientists seem to have a rich enough basket of distinctions to think about politics in other cultures and what's possible for people. (And maybe not- maybe this mainly comes from sociology or other places.)
Few, if anyone, looks at what's possible in politics based on what's possible for humans. I didn't even do that. (I looked at what's desirable, and what would be needed to have it, then what would work.)
Much, much more is possible than our inside-the-box thinking allows. It would take real marketing (storytelling, illustration) to lead society to enlarge its thinking. But it could be done easily. My guess is that it would be similar for entrepreneurship. The incubators are a huge new innovation in entrepreneurship. But they're still missing large opportunities for increasing successful entrepreneurship, if that's their goal...
My real question, May Sun
, is: Why are you asking the question? Are you wondering if you have what it takes? If you "should" try it? Or maybe looking at the suitability of a friend or an applicant? The answer to this might be very helpful for getting valuable input.
