Are you an entrepreneur? A letter from ATB

By ATB Financial 12 March 2019 1 min read

To the movers and shakers, to the world changers and culture makers. To ones we call “entrepreneurs.” This one’s for you.

Who’s an entrepreneur?

Some of you may say “not me.”

Some of you graduated from business school, some from high school. Some of you make things, bake things, shake things up. Maybe you set out toward this end. But we know that many of you may have stumbled across this seemingly by chance. By accident. But we don’t think it’s an accident that you’re here, now. Doing what you were made to do.


Who’s an entrepreneur?

In the stories to come you’ll be hearing from people like you—how they’ve made their own definition of business, and their own definition of entrepreneur. It’s a title to embrace, because like the business you’re building, you’re shaping the word’s definition. It’s a title that’s earned.


So, who’s an entrepreneur?

You are.
