What are the various types of Entrepreneurs?

Ans:   (I)     According to the Types of Business

                     Entrepreneurs are found in various types of business occupations of varying size. We may broadly classify them as follows:

(i)      Business Entrepreneurs: Business entrepreneurs are individuals who conceive an idea for a new product or service and then create a business to materialise their idea into reality. They tap both production and marketing resources in their search to develop a new business opportunity. They may set up a big establishment or a small business unit. They are called small business entrepreneurs when found in small business units such as printing press, textile processing house, advertising agency, ready-made garments, or confectionery. In a majority of cases, entrepreneurs are found in small trading and manufacturing business and entrepreneurship flourishes when the size of the business is small.

(ii)     Trading Entrepreneur: Trading Entrepreneur is one who undertakes trading activities and is not concerned with the manufacturing work. He identifies potential markets, stimulates demand for his product line and creates a desire and interest among buyers to go in for his product. He is engaged in both domestic and overseas trade. Britain, due to geographical limitations, has demonstrated their ability in pushing many ideas ahead which promoted their business.

(iii)    Industrial Entrepreneur: Industrial Entrepreneur is essentially a manufacturer who identifies the potential needs of customers and tailors product or service to meet the marketing needs. He is product-oriented man who starts in an industrial unit because of the possibility of making some new product. The entrepreneur has the ability to convert economic resources and technology into a considerably profitable venture. He is found in any industrial unit such as the electronic industry, textile units, machine tools or video cassette type plant and the like.

(iv)    Corporate Entrepreneur: Corporate Entrepreneur is a person who demonstrates his innovative skill in organizing and managing a corporate undertaking. A corporate undertaking is a form of business organization which is registered under some statute of Act which gives it a separate legal entity. A trust registered under the Must Act, or a company registered under the Companies Act are examples of corporate undertakings. A corporate Entrepreneur is thus an individual who plans, develops and manages a corporate body.

(v)     Agricultural Entrepreneur: Agricultural Entrepreneurs are those  entrepreneurs who undertakes such agricultural activities as raising and marketing of crops, fertilizers and other inputs of agriculture. They are motivated to raise the productivity of agriculture through mechanization, irrigation and application of technologies for dry land agriculture. They cover a broad spectrum of the agricultural sector and include agriculture and allied occupations.

(II)    According to the Use of Technology

The application of new technology in various sectors of the national economy is essential for the future growth of business. We may broadly classify these entrepreneurs on the basis of the use of technology as follows:

(i)      Technical Entrepreneur: A technical entrepreneur is essentially an entrepreneur of “craftsman type.” He develops new and improved quality of goods because of his craftsmanship. He concentrates more on production than marketing. He does not care much to generate sales by applying various sales promotional techniques. He demonstrates his innovative capabilities in matters of production of goods and rendering services. The greatest strength which the technical entrepreneur has is his skill in production techniques.

(ii)     Non-Technical Entrepreneur: Non-technical entrepreneurs are those who are not concerned with the technical aspects of the product in which they deal. They are concerned only with developing alternative marketing and distribution strategies to promote their business.

(iii)    Professional Entrepreneur: Professional entrepreneur is a person who is interested in establishing a business but does not have interest in managing or operating it once it is established. A professional entrepreneur sells out the running business and starts another venture with the sales proceeds. Such an entrepreneur is dynamic and he conceives new ideas to develop alternative projects.

(III)   According to Motivation

Motivation is the force that influences the efforts of the entrepreneur to achieve his objectives. An entrepreneur is motivated to achieve or prove his excellence in job performance. He is also motivated to influence others by demonstrating his power thus satisfying his ego.

(i)      Pure Entrepreneur: A pure entrepreneur is an individual who is motivated by psychological and economic rewards. He undertakes an entrepreneurial activity for his personal satisfaction in work, ego or status.

(ii)     Induced Entrepreneur: Induced entrepreneur is one who is induced to take up an entrepreneurial task due to the policy measures of the government that provides assistance, incentives, concessions and necessary overhead facilities to start a venture. Most of the entrepreneurs are induced entrepreneurs who enter business due to financial, technical and several other facilities provided to them by the state agencies to promote entrepreneurship. A person with a sound project is provided package assistance to his project. Today, import restrictions, and allocation of production quotas to small units have induced many people to start a small-scale industry.

(iii)    Motivated Entrepreneur: New entrepreneurs are motivated by the desire for self-fulfillment. They come into being because of the possibility of making and marketing some new product for the use of consumers. If the product is developed to a saleable stage, the entrepreneur is further motivated by reward in terms of profit.

(iv)    Spontaneous Entrepreneur: These entrepreneurs start their business out of their natural talents. They are persons with initiative, boldness and confidence in their ability which motivate them to undertake entrepreneurial activity. Such entrepreneurs have a strong conviction and confidence in their ability.

(IV)   According to Growth

          The development of a new venture has a greater chance of success. The entrepreneur enters a new and open field of business. The customer approval to the new product gives them psychological satisfaction and enormous profit. The industrial units are identified as high growth, medium growth and low growth industries and as such we have “Growth Entrepreneur: and “Super Growth Entrepreneur.”

(i)      Growth Entrepreneur: Growth entrepreneurs are those who necessarily take up a high growth industry. These entrepreneurs choose an industry which has sustained growth prospects.

(ii)     Super-Growth Entrepreneur: Super-Growth entrepreneurs are those who have shown enormous growth of performance in their venture. The growth performance is identified by the liquidity of funds, profitability and gearing,

(V)    According to Stage of Development

          Entrepreneurs may also be classified as the first generation entrepreneur, modern entrepreneur and classical entrepreneur, depending upon the stage of development.

(i)      First-Generation Entrepreneur: A first-generation entrepreneur is one who starts an industrial unit by means of an innovative skill. He is essentially an innovator, combining different technologies to produce a marketable product or service.

(ii)     Modern Entrepreneur: A modern entrepreneur is one who undertakes those venture which go well along with the changing demand in the market. They undertake those ventures which suit the current marketing needs.

(iii)    Classical Entrepreneur: A classical entrepreneur is one who is concerned with the customers and marketing needs through the development of a self-supporting ventures. He is a stereotype entrepreneur whose aim is to maximise his economic returns at a level consistent with the survival of the firm with or without an element of growth.
