DALLAS — As the 2020 presidential election approaches, there’s a lot of buzz about how many of the 2020 candidates are “entrepreneurs.”
That’s because the term is so broad, and it’s a buzzword that’s been around for a long time.
But the reality is, there are only a handful of candidates who are really in the business of running a business, and many of those are in the field of entrepreneurship.
That includes both men and women.
Entrepreneurship, a field that has its roots in the 19th century, dates back to the 1800s.
The word first came into the American lexicon in the 1820s, as an abbreviation for “entertainment business.”
Today, it’s used to describe a number of activities, including business, science, technology and math, among others.
The field is often defined by the number of people who get involved with it, as well as the number that makes it big.
The 2020 list is not a list of the most well-known or well-respected entrepreneurs, though, but rather, the names of the people who have started and run successful businesses in their respective fields.
The list includes: The Business Roundtable (a nonprofit organization that advocates for business leaders and business owners)
