How do you see yourself as a technopreneur?ME AS A TECHNOPRENEUR:Being a technopreneur is not an easy path to take on. It needs skills that would make you pass through a hard and tough road. To be an entrepreneur especially when it is technology based, it needs to be equipped with qualities such as passionate, innovative, hardworking and strong like Steven Jobs as an example.Everyone can be a Technopreneur as long as he knows things about businesses and how to deliver a product to the consumer in a technological and innovative way.

Well, as for me, I guess I’m not yet a technopreneur. The world of technology is very vast. Who would have thought that technology have gone this big. And it grew bigger and bigger as time passes by. Lots of people are having big ideas in developing or to nurture the existing technologies. And some have made changes in the world of technology.Evaluating myself as a technopreneur I can see some positive characteristics that could supplement by some means for a successful business. I do possess some useful traits such as the following.I really have a positive outlook on life. I see my problems as blessings from above. Sometimes I give up but not that straightforward. I seek solutions first and give my best try on solving whatever adversity I am opposing on. In a business, maybe I can be effective on this aspect since being a technopreneur needs to comprise the attitude of optimism because you will be experiencing risk taking. Having a positive outlook on life and brightness can increase the chances of surviving and flourishing your business especially when you are under hard obstacles and crisis. In this matter I can pass the standard of a technopreneur that must possess optimistic view on situations that will probably occur. This attitude is essential to be a good technopreneur.Honestly I can’t see myself very creative, innovative, and intelligent but I do still believe in my abilities because for me it is the passion for your work or project that will make you excel. Another point is that once you will be passionate on your work, your employees will also be the same and will be inspired with the way you act as their boss. I will be a cool technopreneur that will not have a business of pure work but a business which incorporates enjoyment and learning because for me the joy you receive from your work is much greater.
