Difference Between an Entrepreneur and Business Man

Is there any difference between an entrepreneur and a business man. If yes how do they differ. I have seen this question being asked on the internet on multiple platform with no proper answers offered. So I referred to some business texts to find out how these two differ from one another. Those text says that an entrepreneur is being called so when he initiates, conceptualize and materialize a business process which is entirely unique. In other words an entrepreneur is someone who starts a business from a fresh idea and make it work.

A business man is some one who start a business on an existing market platform laid by the entrepreneurs. In this context it we can see that entrepreneurs weigh more than a business man. Being an entrepreneur is a difficult task. One will have to cut his own way through to find his market and get his brand or the product established. Outgoing attitude and a will to succeed in any difficult circumstances are the common traits one find in an entrepreneur.

Acceptance in conservative societies in Asian and few European markets is the major challenge faced by the entrepreneurs. In this case American market is considered the most liberal. This is the reason why we find emergence of entrepreneurs more in United States than in any other countries. But the explosive growth of multimedia communication and information technology has helped the ones who are aspiring to become entrepreneurs. Easy reach to the masses is one of the major contributions to business which information technology has provided for the business men.
