LIMERICK, IRELAND, August 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The typical stereotype of an entrepreneur is a young, male graduate, but this is not necessarily the case throughout the UK. It takes many different skills to become an entrepreneur, but these are skills that could be found amongst anyone, from any background. In a recent study conducted by Amazon Marketplace it was found that only 22% of entrepreneurs had a degree whilst 29% had stopped education at A-levels or below. A third of UK entrepreneurs are over 50 and 48% of those involved in start-up businesses are female.

So what characteristics do these people from such diverse backgrounds have in common? What qualities must be possessed to become an entrepreneur?
The Amazon research showed that two thirds of those questioned said that success is their biggest motivator. Other important factors were being innovative and creative, but also competitive, determined and decisive. They are confident in their decisions and have strong leadership skills, but are also good learners. The key quality for an entrepreneur is the combination of being creative enough to think up an idea and then being determined enough to see it through to become a successful business.
Entrepreneurs and start-up businesses are extremely beneficial for the economy. The new businesses create plenty of new job opportunities which then provide consumer income which consumers then put back into the economy by spending. Fundamentally, entrepreneurs help to shape a community in ways such as providing jobs, conducting business locally, creating and participating in entrepreneurial networks, investing in community projects, and giving to local charities.
