"Entrepreneurship is a state of mind that stems from a thirst for freedom and the rejection of a career as an employee.
It enables us to overcome challenges, make decisions and take responsibility.
It's a constant need to improve skills and learn from mistakes.
Having an innovative idea to start a business is not enough. You need to know how to grow and build it".
