relationships with people like suppliers,
customers and employees.

amount of unemployment in the country.
f) Introduction of Latest Technology:

that have increased sales and created an
wealthy economy in order to improve the
lives of millions.
5)Stages necessary to evaluate a
New Business Idea:
Stage 1: Identifying Customer Needs
This is the 1st
stage in evaluating a
business idea, as the entrepreneur has to
identify the needs and wants of the
customers in the market. It also depends
on the way customer thinks and their taste
for the products and services.
Stage 2: Unique Products and Services
The 2nd
Stage explains that the
entrepreneur has to have the uniqueness
and add value to the products and
services for impressing the customers to
buy his products. The products should
have the right quality and reliable features
to satisfy any customer.
Stage 3: Growth and Development:
This stage explains that whether the idea
from the entrepreneur can grow and
develop in large scales as well. The
entrepreneur should be able to increase
the value and add features to the product
eventually.
Stage 4: Sustainability:
The 4th
stage defines that whether the
growth of the entrepreneur’s products are
sustainable or is it only for a very short
period of time.
Stage 5: Profitability:
The final stage explains whether the
benefits help the taste and wants of the
customers and does it provide profit to the
entrepreneur as the customer base
increases.
5) Critique of common
misconceptions around the
above issues:
Bascically most of the entrepreneurs are
not persistent and they give up during the
peak time in business when it matters.
Sometimes even when they follow the
steps to get new business ideas, they fail
in following it regularly. Success does not
come to everyone and it can only be
achieved when somebody works hard for
it. Even the location of the business may
criticize the interests of many
entrepreneurs in many ways. The
disadvantages of entrepreneurship are
even more than advantages because
everyone might not be successful. The
main misconceptions financial risk where
the resources needed to start and grow a
business is very difficult in this modern
world. When the entrepreneur has stress,
he/she tends to give up easily on a
business, which they dreamed about.
There is also time commitment, which the
entrepreneur fails to give when it is
needed.
6) Summary and recommendations:
The main aim of this project is to understand
the basic introduction of Entrepreneurship and
the small businesses. It gives the idea to start
new businesses by different methods and
helps us in understanding the modern world of
business and small businesses. It helps the
entrepreneurs to convert their dreams to
reality by following certain steps.
Entrepreneurship can help many people get
introduced to the modern world of business
and help them realize the advantages and
disadvantages of certain products and
services. It also helps in bringing down the
poverty in some countries by introducing
charity works by the entrepreneurs. One of the
most successful entrepreneur is Steve Jobs
who has taken the world into new scene by
introducing apple IPhones that has the most
demand in the phone market presently.
Entrepreneurs also create employment for
most of the people in the country and can help
improving the economy of the country in many
ways. Entrepreneurship also helps in
identifying new products, which have new
features that the world can get used to and
help many people excel with profits.
