A HISTORY OF 
ENTERPRISE
Irish-French economist Richard Cantillon coined the word 
‘entrepreneur’ in 1730 and identified the entrepreneur’s role as a risk 
taker who is balancing the markets by predicting what buyers want. 
Some look at things 
that are, and ask why. I 
dream of things that never 
were and ask why not? 
George Bernard Shaw
When I came to Facebook 
and it was time to figure out 
where to put our international 
headquarters…we actually 
really only looked at Ireland 
Sheryl Sandberg, 
COO Facebook 
Ireland is a great 
place to do business
