The effect of information technology on E-entrepreneurship
Rajesh G Walode
The word technology is not a new one. In fact, the root of the word means to shift or to change, and was used originally in relation to changing nature. As Bacon, Locke, the Descartes recognized, this idea of man changing nature, rather than being controlled by it was essential to the emergence of the autonomous self, and eventually to the very notion of the entrepreneur. Thus, technology and entrepreneurship are tightly related. Today we think of technology as being about electronics (computers, software, web applications, etc.), but I would suggest that smart entrepreneurs still view technology-in whatever form-as a means to an end, and not an end of itself. Successful entrepreneurs-those who have a clear concept of what they are trying to accomplish-leaverage technology in order to help them achieve their goals more quickly. In order to ascertain which technology will align with their goals, entrepreneurs must have a very open and inquisitive bias towards technology. An entrepreneur is an owner or manager of business enterprise who makes money through risk and initiative. “Entrepreneurship” is the ability to run a business on the Internet. It requires just the “Connectivity”. A Entrepreneur, as long as he has a service which the market requires can set up a viable business with his “Intellectual Capital” as the main input and the “Connectivity Infrastructure” as the only physical input.
