Introduction Entrepreneurship is difficult to define throughout its history research. Even nowadays, this concept is still a debatable point (Rajendra, et al., 2017).

Shane and Venkataraman (2000) consider entrepreneurship as “a new venture’s risk-taking endeavor seeking an opportunity” and Fortunato (2014) adds innovative value into the concept of entrepreneurship. Thus, research on the definition of entrepreneurship continue. According to those diverse views, I will interpret six unique entrepreneurial characteristics and theoretically analyze each one.

Q1: List three personality traits, which are crucial for successful entrepreneur. Discuss them and provide argumentation for your thinking.
The entrepreneurial function implies the discovery, assessment and exploitation of opportunities, in other words, new products, services or production processes; new strategies and organizational forms and new markets for products and inputs that did not previously exist (Shane and Venkataraman, 2000). The entrepreneurial opportunity is an unexpected and as yet unvalued economic opportunity. Entrepreneurial opportunities exist because different agents have differing ideas on the relative value of resources or when resources are turned from inputs into outputs. The theory of the entrepreneur focuses on the heterogeneity of beliefs about the value of resources (Alvarez and Busenitz, 2001: 756). Entrepreneurship – the entrepreneurial function, can be conceptualized as the discovery of opportunities and the subsequent creation of new economic activity, as a majority or active shareholder who, in many small and medium–sized firms, assumes both the entrepreneurial and managerial functions (Reynolds, 2005).

History of Entrepreneurial Research The history of entrepreneurial research falls into three phases, each representing a change in the viewpoint of whether entrepreneurs are born or made (Nielsen et al., 2012). The first phase began between 1960s and 1970s, and is also known as the “optimistic” phase (Nielsen et al., 2012). The understanding during this phase was that entrepreneurs are born with a distinct set of traits, which differentiates them from other non-entrepreneurial individuals (Nielsen et al., 2012). The next phase occurred in the 1980s and it brought about critical changes in the field of entrepreneurial research (Nielsen et al., 2012). During this phase, entrepreneurs were looked at as more than a set of personality traits. This gave rise to more diverse theories, which focused on the interaction of individuals with their environments and made way for the view that
