Technopreneurship is not a product but a process of synthesis in engineering the future of a person, an organization, a nation and the world. In a digital, knowledge based society, strategic directions or decision-making processes will be demanding and complex. This requires tertiary level and professional development programs and training to produce strategic thinkers who will have the skills to succeed in a dynamically changing global environment. Traditional educational programs, however, lack the methodology to transform today's students into creative, innovative, visionary global leaders who understand the importance of technopreneurship.
Yudha Pratomo, Utilization of Human Virtual Intelligence Framework in Managing Technopreneur Knowledge, Faculty of Computer Science,University of Sriwijaya, Jurnal Generic 2010 :
The terminology of technology entrepreneur or ‘technopreneur’ is used to describe the combination between pure technologist and traditional business people. There is a significant difference between an entrepreneur and a technopreneur, with the latter having an advantage on the mastery of the technology element besides possessing good business acumen.
Technopreneurs are people who make or found their own technology-based business by recognizing opportunities and organizing resources. They are owner, manager, leader, or founder of an organization. They make decisions and take consequences on every aspect within the organization. The typical of technology entrepreneurs are technology minded, risk taker, leader / organizer. They are busy people with very limited time. They have to do many things in many areas of knowledge. To do such things, they need to prepare themselves with the abilities to make use of available information to make strategic decisions. They also have to learn very fast to accommodate the chaotic changes in market trends and conditions.
Chua Eng Hwa, An Action Learning Journey of a Technopreneur in Creating, Sustaining and Growing a World Class Knowledge-Based Teaching Organisation in Factory Automation in the 21st Century, July 2009 :
A Technopreneur is an extension of an entrepreneur, and makes use of technology to make a new invention and innovation and thereby exploits his achievement in the market to make money. What differentiates a Technopreneur from any other businessman is the way a Technopreneur operates his business (Milton-Smith 1999; Verburg 2005). His business is generally marked with a high growth potential and high leverage of knowledge and intellectual property. Technopreneurs are technically conversant and able to spot opportunities in high tech or high value added products and processes. It is the Technopreneurs who have successfully invented or commercialized many of the innovations we have today. The writer concurs from his Actions-Observations-and-Reflections (A-O-R) that the critical three core qualities that a Technopreneur must possess to be successful are vision, a never-die-spirit and an innovative mind.
(especially in South and SE Asia) a person who sets up a business concerned with computers or similar technology.
