NOEW 2015 is Coming: What is an Entrepreneur?

This post by Blackstone Content Correspondent Summer Suleiman originally appeared on

This month on #IDEAinsider, we asked entrepreneurs and the people who support them to define what the word entrepreneur means to them.

We heard unique and compelling answers from each that illustrated the depth and breadth of what being an entrepreneur really means. For some, it’s a self-starter, a problem solver, and for others, an inherent quality.

As we approach the 7th annual New Orleans Entrepreneur Week, we invite you to think about what an entrepreneur is to you. We’ll be venturing out during NOEW to ask people on the ground what their definition is.

In the meantime, join the conversation on Twitter: @helloNOEW and tell us what you think an entrepreneur is? #NOEW2015.
