a entrepreneur is a person who can undertake a commercial venture. what are 6 characteristics of this person
I would add to those ten characteristics having the ability to evaluate and manipulate others.
This lovely word has been borrowed from the French.
entre = between; among; in, into
preneur = taker, buyer
The feminine form is entrepreneuse, however we don't use that.
Here is what my dictionary says:

Pronunciation: "änn-tr&-p(r)&-'n&r, -'n(y)ur
Etymology: French, from Old French, from entreprendre to undertake —more at ENTERPRISE
