Entrepreneurship and Risk:

The major complications with the pursuit of business ownership are the significant risks involved. As a result, there are a significant number of small business failures. Notably, a remarkably large percentage of people who begin the start-up process terminate it less than one year later.

Risk Factors and Business Models:

One of the primary concerns in a small business is the problem of risk. Many who begin the start-up process terminate it in less than one year. Of those that survive, many are unable to achieve sustained growth and profits. Small-to-medium business enterprises (SME) have a 50% to 90% chance of failure within the first five years.
