Entrepreneur Speakers

While entrepreneurship has likely existed in some form throughout human history, the concept as it’s understood today emerged in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, during the Industrial Revolution. The earliest entrepreneurs were likely to be inventors and innovators, creating products and developing new technologies to meet a demand that they recognised in the market, often with the goal of turning a profit. Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison being two relatively recent examples.
