Entrepreneurship is a decisive factor in order to achieve dynamism and competition for today’s knowledge-based economy. In today’s start-ups and its new varieties, entrepreneurship is considered not only as a means of contributing to employment and social and political stability, but as a power for innovation and competition. There is a growing belief that entrepreneurship, innovation and new risks provide necessary fuel for modern development engines. Economists and entrepreneurship scholars consider entrepreneurial behaviour as an entrepreneurial discovery existing in all economic and human activities.
