what is entrepreneurship, what is the help in tourism

Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new organizations, particularly new businesses generally in response to identified opportunities. Entrepreneurship is often a difficult undertaking, as a majority of new businesses fail. Entrepreneurial activities are substantially different depending on the type of organization that is being started. Entrepreneurship may involve creating many job opportunities.

Many "high-profile" entrepreneurial ventures seek venture capital or angel funding in order to raise capital to build the business. Many kinds of organizations now exist to support would-be entrepreneurs, including specialized government agencies, business incubators, science parks, and some NGOs.

Our understanding of entrepreneurship owes a lot to the work of economist Joseph Schumpeter and the Austrian School of economics. For Schumpeter (1950), an entrepreneur is a person who is willing and able to convert a new idea or invention into a successful innovation. Entrepreneurship forces "creative destruction" across markets and industries, simultaneously creating new products and business models others. In this way, creative destruction is largely responsible for the dynamism of industries and long-run economic growth. Despite Schumpeter's early 20th-century contributions, the traditional microeconomic theory of economics has had little room for entrepreneurs in their theories. (ref. The Economist Magazine, March 11, 2006, pp 67.

If entrepreneurship remains as important to the economy as ever, then the continuing failure of mainstream economics to adequately account for entrepreneurship indicates that fundamental principles require re-evaluation. Entrepreneurial Economics is the study of the entrepreneur and entrepreneurship within the economy. The charecteristics of entrepreneurial economy (regional or national level) are high level of innovation combined with high level of entrepreneurship which result in the creation of new ventures as well as new sectors and industries.

Mainstream economics does not include entrepreneurship not because there is no theory or analytical framework for entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship does not belong in mainstream theory; in fact mainstream theory makes the entrepreneur an invisible man. The reason for that is that the construct of equilibrium models, which is central to mainstream economics, is exactly what by definition excludes entrepreneurship. Joseph Schumpeter and Israel Kirzner have argued in their writings, that entrepreneur does not tolerate equilibrium. According to Baumol, mainstream theory is not ‘wrong’ by excluding entrepreneurship it is irrelevant there.

Entrepreneurship has been perceived as a chaotic, unpredictable economic process, which cannot be modeled using the equilibrium based analytical methods used in mainstream economic theory. It seems no longer possible to expect that only theoretical refinements and extending known principles can provide for a theory of entrepreneurship. Challenging 'fundamental principles' like equilibrium models, rational agent, maximization paradigm, the traditional production function, by applying insight from other disciplines like theoretical physics (thermodynamics, entropy) might be the way forward in the study of entrepreneurial economics. Coase surveys the field of economics and believes it has become a "theory-driven" subject that has moved into a paradigm in which conclusions take precedence over problems. "If you look at a page of a scientific journal like Nature," he said, "every few weeks you have statements such as, 'We’ll have to think it out again. These results aren’t going the way we thought they would.' Well, in economics, the results always go the way we thought they would because we approach the problems in the same way, only asking certain questions. Entrepreneurial Economics challenges fundamental principles, using insights from models and theories in the natural sciences.
