List of famous American entrepreneurs with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Ask an entrepreneur who had the guts to cast off corporate shackles and kick start his own business, and he will tell you that it is the most fulfilling and perhaps the most nerve-racking thing that he has ever tried. For those with entrepreneurial minds, nothing beats the sense of freedom that comes with breaking away from the routine job and becoming one's own boss. But such freedom always comes with a price. Nearly all accomplished entrepreneurs will amuse you with long, inspiring stories long nights, lean times and near-catastrophes. Becoming an entrepreneur warrants diving in all the way, because you cannot just waddle into it half-heartedly and do well. Entrepreneurial success is not always about business as much as it is about one's ability to innovate and create value. America, the land of opportunities, where hard work and intelligence never goes in vain, has borne scores of entrepreneurial heroes, who have contributed heavily in the wealth building of the country. Explore all about the timeline, trivia, and interesting facts about American entrepreneurs in their biographies here.
