What is an Entrepreneur?

An entrepreneur generates one or more new business ideas, then through the process of research and development, commercialises the idea into a new product or service for the market place.

Entrepreneurship, research and innovation are increasingly becoming an important part of the world of work and should be considered a career option. 

UC Centre for Entrepreneurship (UCE) is dedicated to students to fuel innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit.
