Early Signs of Entrepreneurial Giftedness
Shavinina, Larisa V.
Gifted and Talented International, v23 n1 p9-15 Aug 2008
Although successful entrepreneurship is important for the economic prosperity of any society, one should acknowledge that entrepreneurial giftedness is terra incognita from a research viewpoint. This article analyzes early manifestations of entrepreneurial giftedness in the cases of Richard Branson, Michael Dell, and Bill Gates and thus opens a new direction in giftedness research. These outstanding, highly accomplished entrepreneurs with long-standing records of achievements in business represent cases of fulfilled or realized entrepreneurial giftedness. It is thus appropriate to study them in detail in order to understand the first signs of potential or developing entrepreneurial giftedness in today's children. (Contains 1 footnote.)
