Part 2 Tasks
According to Byers, Kist, and Suttonâ€™s article titled â€œCharacteristics of the Entrepreneur: Social Creatures, Not Solo Heroes,â€ entrepreneurs are inherently social people (1997). This article explains why entrepreneurs are highly social by nature. In an article titled â€œWho’s Most Likely to go it Alone?,â€ 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 personâ€™s social characteristics.
- Include references to the characteristics found in the Bianchi article, and align the characteristics with the founderâ€™s personality.
Please submit your assignment.
