I/E (Individualpreneurship and Enterpriship)

Pasted Graphic

TechKnowParters has licensed intellectual property from Business Leadership Development Corporation (BLD) for use in its business/technology practice (B/T). BLD has developed two concepts: individualpreneurship and enterpriship (entrepreneurship, leadership, and management), which are of value to entrepreneurs and business owners. Collectively, we call these concepts I/E.

Individualpreneurship (individual entrepreneurship)

A discipline, mindset, and activity whereby an individual (the "individualpreneur") behaves as an enterprise in their own right, and is fully responsible for both professional and personal income generation and expense management.


The process of building enterprises with sustainable advantage, and has a framework of three-related disciplines: entrepreneurship, leadership, and management - "Enterpriship" is derived from four words: management, leadership, enterprise, entrepreneurship.

Through its licensing arrangement with BLD, TechKnowPartners is presenting many materials regarding
Individualpreneurship and Enterpriship on this site.

These include:
The Guide To Business Leadership Development

BLD has published two books that contain selections of this material: "
Understanding Personal Styles" and "The Individual As An Enterprise," that are available in TechKnowPartners retail store.
