Part 2 Tasks
According to Byers, Kist, and Sutton’s article titled “Characteristics of the Entrepreneur: Social Creatures, Not Solo Heroes,” entrepreneurs are inherently social people (1997). This article explains why entrepreneurs are highly social by nature. In an article titled “Who’s Most Likely to go it Alone?,” Alessandra Bianchi offers a set of characteristics that predispose people toward entrepreneurship (1993). These characteristics, for example, come from life experiences such as being the child of an entrepreneur, being fired from multiple jobs, or being either an immigrant or the child of an immigrant. With these readings in mind, complete the following in a paper of 4 pages: • Profile the founder of a well-known company, and focus on that person’s social characteristics. • Include references to the characteristics found in the Bianchi article, and align the characteristics with the founder’s personality.
