Business entrepreneurship is simply entrepreneurship practiced in business. Business entrepreneurship is simply entrepreneurship practiced in business, and one who practices entrepreneurship in business is called an entrepreneur. Joseph Schumpeter defines entrepreneur as individuals who develop and implement new combinations of the means of production. He believed entrepreneurship to be fundamental to economic development. Similarly, Peter F. Drucker also considers innovation and entrepreneurship very important for promoting well being in a society. He suggests that managers must make innovation and entrepreneurship an ongoing activity in their own work and in that of their organization. This kind of entrepreneurship practiced within the sphere of existing organizations is some times referred as intrapreneurship.
