Entrepreneur Quotes

“Entrepreneurs need to start building today. The barrier to entry in tech is low, so start designing, start coding it, launch it, build prototypes, build a working version of it. The Internet has amazing powers of distribution. You can test your ideas. You can see if it works, if it doesn't work, whether it's fun, and whether you're sufficiently motivated. People who go into entrepreneurship to get rich aren't going to be happy. It’s the building of things that makes you happy. You have to enjoy the process whether you succeed or fail.”

Caterina Fake (Source:

“Entrepreneurs do not try and create new types of smartphone technologies now because they know it's pointless: They're going to get sued almost immediately.”

“Entrepreneur is just French for 'has ideas, does them'.”

Alexis Ohanian (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are all a little crazy. There is a fine line between an entrepreneur and a crazy person. Crazy people see and feel things that others don't. An entrepreneur's dream is often a kind of madness, and it is almost as isolating. What differentiates the entrepreneur from the crazy person is that the former gets other people to believe in his vision.”

Anita Roddick (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are visionaries - they see things other people don't see.”

Anita Roddick (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are outsiders by nature - outsiders with a work ethic.”

entrepreneurs usuall quote by dave mcclure

Donald Trump (Source:

“Entrepreneurs: See yourself as victorious- and the best way to be victorious is to be passionate. Find something you love doing!”

Donald Trump (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are motivated by independence as well as challenge, knowing they are ultimately responsible for themselves. Monetary success is certainly helpful, but it often becomes more of a score card than anything else.”

Donald Trump (Source:

“Entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship. It drives everything: Job creation, poverty alleviation, innovation.”

Elliott Bisnow (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is like eating glass and walking on hot coals at the same time”

Elon Musk (Source:

“Entrepreneurs always pitch their idea as 'the X of Y', so this is going to be 'the Microsoft of food.' And yet disruptive innovations usually don't have that character. Most of the time, if something seems like a good idea, it probably isn't.”

Eric Ries (Source:

“Entrepreneurs can't forecast accurately, because they are trying something fundamentally new. So they will often be laughably behind plan - and on the brink of success.”

Eric Ries (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is not really building a product, it's not having an idea, it's not being in the right place at the right time. It's fundamentally company building.”

Eric Ries (Source:

“Entrepreneurs' willingness to innovate or just to invest - and thus create new jobs - is driven by their 'animal spirits,' as they decide whether to leap into the void.”

Edmund Phelps (Source:

“Entrepreneurs have only the murkiest picture of the future in which they are making their bets, and also there is ambiguity: they don't know when they push this lever or that lever that the outcome is going to be what they think it is going to be - there is the law of unanticipated consequences.”

Edmund Phelps (Source:

“Entrepreneurial creation is the generation, de novo, of novelty and surprise- freedom of choice originating in the world of ideas, and imagination beyond all concern with chemicals. The contrary view- that all ideas are determined by material relationships- is the materialist superstition.”

George Gilder (Source:

“Entrepreneurial knowledge has little to do with certified expertise, advanced degrees, or the learning of establishment schools. The fashionably educated and cultivated spurn the kind of fanatically focused learning commanded by the innovators. Wealth all too often comes from doing what other people consider insufferably boring or unendurably hard.”

George Gilder (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is the launching of surprises.”

George Gilder (Source:

“Entrepreneur is not a job title. It is a state of mind of people who want to alter the future.”

Guy Kawasaki (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is not for everyone.”

Guy Kawasaki (Source:

“Entrepreneurship isn't for everyone, and not everyone is going to be an entrepreneur, but women who turn to business, turn to economics, because there are people depending on them, I think that their creativity, their resilience, their spirit, embody what's best about entrepreneurship.”

Gayle Tzemach Lemmon (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is seen as if you're in Silicon Valley or New York City and starting an app business or a social-media business, which is cool. But what we really have to focus on is people who make things, and how can we fund them, and how can we encourage people to stay in their community and make a difference in their community.”

Hamdi Ulukaya (Source:
entrepreneurs are al quote by heidi roizen

“Entrepreneurs constantly confuse what they do with who they are.”

Howard A. Tullman (Source:

entrepreneurs make f quote by mark suster

“Entrepreneurs make fast decisions and move forward knowing that at best 70% of their decisions are going to be right. They move the ball forward every day. They are quick to spot their mistakes and correct.”

Mark Suster (Source:

“Entrepreneurs have two basic assets: their creativity and their relationships.”

Mark Victor Hansen (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are perennially short on cash, so they tend to hire less expensive and less experienced team members. Yet most founders are overworked, so they have no time and budget for coaching and training. Team members not confident in their roles lose motivation quickly.”

Martin Zwilling (Source:

“Entrepreneurship may be the most under-taught subject.”

Marty Nemko (Source:

“Entrepreneurs don't believe the future is predictable - but they do believe that they can create the future themselves.”

Maximillian Degenerez (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is having an idea to do something great and not entirely have a plan on how to do it but the drive and will power to make it work”

Michael Bloomberg (Source:

“Entrepreneurs don't do most of the work. Entrepreneurs identify the problems, discover the opportunities and then build processes to allow other people and other things to do the work.”

Mike Michalowicz (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is not only a mindset but a skillset.”

Mitchell Kapor (Source:

Naval Ravikant (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.”

Niccolo Machiavelli (Source:

entrepreneur your l quote by onyi anyado

Pharrell Williams (Source:

“Entrepreneurs believe that profit is what matters most in a new enterprise. But profit is secondary. Cash flow matters most.”

Peter Drucker (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is “risky— mainly because so few of the so-called entrepreneurs know what they are doing.”

Peter Drucker (Source:

“Entrepreneurship rests on a theory of economy and society. The theory sees change as normal and indeed as healthy. And it sees the major task in society - and especially in the economy - as doing something different rather than doing better what is already being done. That is basically what Say, two hundred years ago, meant when he coined the term entrepreneur. It was intended as a manifesto and as a declaration of dissent: the entrepreneur upsets and disorganizes. As Joseph Schumpeter formulated it, his task is "creative destruction.”

Peter Drucker (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are like visionaries. One of the ways they run forward is by viewing the thing they're doing as something that's going to be the whole world.”

Reid Hoffman (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is a life idea, not a strictly business one; a global idea, not a strictly American one.”

Reid Hoffman (Source:

“Entrepreneursh ip is a great leveller, since having the benefit of a wealthy background or a generous investor isn't always an advantage. The wonderful thing is that money is not the sole currency when it comes to starting a business; drive, determination, passion and hard work are all free and more valuable than a pot of cash.”

Richard Branson (Source:

“Entrepreneurial business favours the open mind. It favours people whose optimism drives them to prepare for many possible futures, pretty much purely for the joy of doing so.”

Richard Branson (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is about turning what excites you in life into capital, so that you can do more of it and move forward with it.”

Richard Branson (Source:

“Entrepreneurs don't finish when we are tired. We finish when we are done.”

Robert Kiyosaki (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is a process, not a job or profession. So be faithful to the process and remember that even when times are bad, the process will give you a glimpse of the future that lies ahead.”

Robert Kiyosaki (Source:

“Entrepreneurs, because they need money, they are willing to share their crystal ball with someone like me. That's the best thing ever.”

Ron Conway (Source:

“Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.”

Ronald Reagan (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are the forgotten heroes of America.”

Ronald Reagan (Source:

“Entrepreneurs need to be positive. Always. Entrepreneurs need to be brave, often. And lastly, entrepreneurs need to be obsessed.”

“Entrepreneurship is an addiction to being successful, not a job or career. You have to feed the addiction and recharge from it or you'll burn out.”

Ryan Blair (Source:

“Entrepreneurs, by disposition, are built to think big. When a role no longer affords those opportunities, it might be best to leave it in capable hands and move on.”

Ryan Holmes (Source:

“Entrepreneurs pay the price of a road less traveled, while everyone else takes the freeway and perpetually misses their own exit.”

Simon Sinek (Source:

“Entrepreneurs see the thing they want or need, then try to figure out a process of how to get it. People who shouldn't be entrepreneurs see the standard process they need to go through to get the thing they want or need then decide if they want to go through that process.”

Simon Sinek (Source:

“Entrepreneurship without skills limits your growth potential.”

Strive Masiyiwa (Source:

“Entrepreneurs don't write a 100-page business plan and execute it one time; they're always experimenting and adapting based on what they learn.”

Thomas Friedman (Source:

“Entrepreneurs and innovators across the country are developing and deploying new data-powered IT tools to help clinicians succeed at delivering better care at lower cost.”

Todd Park (Source:

“Entrepreneurs have no memories. They take on the world with a completely fresh view.”

Tom Peters (Source:
entrepreneurs dont  quote by tom szaky

“Entrepreneurs don't really make mistakes, though. We just make decisions that seem right at the time, but which sometimes turn out to have been the wrong path to take. For example, we allowed a buyer to place a huge opening order and later had to take some product back. We didn't have our sell-through programs in place, so in hindsight, it would have been wiser to sell in less product at the outset. The scary thing is you are always making decisions without knowing the future.”

Tom Szaky (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputations on the line in support of an idea or enterprise.”

Victoria Woodhull (Source:

“Entrepreneurs have the flexibility and the ability to do things that large companies simply cannot. Could a large company pull off a trick like Amyris, going from anti-malaria medicine to next-generation fuel?”

Vinod Khosla (Source:

“Entrepreneurs are different beasts. Beasts who don't give a damn, who kick ass when required, who stand up to a challenge, and who rise time and again with utter disregard to fear or failure. These are the beasts who run the world.”

Vishwas Mudagal (Source:

“Entrepreneurship is like a computer game in which you have to master every level before achieving success. Startups repeatedly stumble and have to go back to the drawing board.

Vivek Wadhwa (Source:
