Entrepreneurship is a beautiful experience of never ending possibilities, Entrepreneurship it is described by Harvard Business School Professor Howard Stevenson as “the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled”. An entrepreneur needs to combine forces to yield desirable result indeed “if you can dream it up, you can team it up”. The principle of leverage is centered on taking advantage of existing resources to achieve result as compare to using “limited effort” alone to pursue.
