Entrepreneurs both drive and respond to change. First, the entrepreneur is a change agent - driving waves of incremental or disruptive innovation. Transformational technologies such as social media, internet search, share economy business models and data analytics all began with an entrepreneur. Second, the entrepreneur is someone who can spot and take advantage of the opportunities implicit in societal scale change, wether seen in terms of demographics, changing tastes, regulatory shifts or new technologies.
