Sample text

Sometimes an entrepreneur may innovate by simply tweaking an existing idea. When Carrie Ferrence and Jacqueline Gjurgevich were attending Bainbridge Graduate Institute on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, they noticed that many of the surrounding neighborhoods were “food deserts,” lacking stores that sold fresh, locally grown produce and other basic necessities. They founded Stockbox Grocers, which converts old shipping containers into little food stores. The company won a small grant and raised additional funds through Kickstarter.

To compete successfully, each firm must find a basis for competitive differentiation, the unique combination of organizational abilities, products, and approaches that sets a company apart from competitors in the minds of customers. Businesses operating in a private enterprise system face a critical task of keeping up with changing marketplace conditions. Firms that fail to adjust to shifts in consumer preferences or ignore the actions of competitors leave themselves open to failure. Apple and Microsoft have long been known for their rivalry, despite the fact that on occasion they have teamed up in alliances.

An entrepreneur is a risk taker in the private enterprise system. You hear about entrepreneurs all the time—two college students starting a software business in their dorm room or a mom who invents a better baby carrier. Many times their success is modest but, once in a while, the risk pays off in huge profits. Individuals who recognize marketplace opportunities are free to use their capital, time, and talents to pursue those opportunities for profit. The willingness of individuals to start new ventures drives economic growth and keeps pressure on existing companies to continue to satisfy customers.
