Enterprise and self-employment

What is Enterprise?

The skills associated with being enterprising include being:

  • creative and innovative,
  • confident and energetic,
  • decisive and prepared to take (calculated) risks yet being flexible,
  • a good communicator, and
  • having good networking skills.

In addition to having enterprise skills, entrepreneurs start a new business and take a product (goods or services) to market. Therefore, an entrepreneur also needs a range of business skills to successfully start-up, develop, manage and grow their business.

But it is not just about starting your own business. Using entrepreneurial behaviour within an organisation is something which many graduate employers require. This is known as 'intrapreneurship'.

We can help you develop your enterprising, entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skills!
