A Business Unit of Taylor-James Corporation
Ridgewood Enterprises epitomizes the act of being an entrepreneur, which can be defined as
"one who undertakes innovations, finance and business acumen in an effort to transform innovations into economic
goods". This may result in new organizations or may be part of revitalizing mature organizations in response to
a perceived opportunity. The most obvious form of entrepreneurship is that of starting new businesses (referred
as Startup Company).
Entrepreneurial activities are substantially different depending on the type of organization
and creativity involved. Entrepreneurship ranges in scale from solo projects (even involving the entrepreneur
only part-time) to major undertakings creating many job opportunities. Whenever possible, we fund a new venture,
however, "high value" entrepreneurial ventures may require outside investors or we may we seek venture capital
or angel funding (seed money) in order to raise capital to build the business.
