Entrepreneur is a word for an innovative individual who starts a business or creates a product, marketing scheme, etc.

Benjamin Franklin was a successful entrepreneur, diplomat, writer, policy maker, polymath and one of our founding fathers. [1]

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” Henry Ford.

The word is from the French: "entrepedre" to underatake, and originally applied to the director of a musical institution before the meaning broadened to its modern application.

President George W. Bush once famously remarked: "The trouble with the French is they don't have a word for 'entrepreneur'"
