The Entrepreneur, according to Melcion, Chassagne & Cie

Despite the profound evolution of the business world over the past 30 years, the definition of an Entrepreneur remains a constant for us. A vision inherited from the ’70s and already formulated by 2 researchers. According to them, an Entrepreneur is defined by two essential characteristics:

A constant desire to undertake and to take the initiative on a permanent basis
The need to keep control over one's destiny, of over one's personal career trajectory

This approach is far from the common understanding that associates the idea of “Entrepreneur” with the notion of “risk-taking,” adventure-seeking or significant financial gains. So, for us, someone behind a start-up isn’t necessarily an Entrepreneur, while an employee could very well be one without knowing it!

More to the point

An Entrepreneur is never satisfied with routine. He or she needs constant challenges, and this permanent dissatisfaction pushes them to innovate constantly.

Because we have been practicing Entrepreneurship for over 30 years, we understand your expectations. Our expertise is expressed during our meetings: we listen to you, share with you our experiences on similar subjects and entrust you with the questions that we believe are relevant to ask.

Relief from the double solitude of the Entrepreneur
