Many people use the terms entrepreneur and innovator interchangeably, but there is a significant difference. Innovators are the people that can envision and create new products. Entrepreneurs are the people that can build successful businesses around those products. Innovation without entrepreneurship often ends up as a hobby. The hobby might even generate a little revenue, but without effective business leadership, the chances of growing into a thriving enterprise become quite small.
Most innovators are passionate about their particular field of expertise, but often lack the knowledge, experience or interest to plan and implement the activities necessary for the business side of the business.
