    Apotent Archetypes of the Hearth: The Entrepreneur

    This world no longer is run by companies, family companies or sole-proprieterships. The era of JohnSmithCo is long dead, has been for over a century. [Despite many stories in multiple media that would have you believe otherwise] The time of "the buck stops here" industrialist at the helm of the massive multi-national company is over. Replaced with it's amorphous massive insidious "cousin", the soul-less, face-less, uber-adaptable yet monolithic Corporation. The Board of Directors is the final word, except they serve the shareholders, who are never privy to the Boards meetings and are as culpable as the time it takes to make a stock-order.

    In this "new" (see: the LAST DAMN CENTURY) era of corporate intermingling and deniability, a new counterpart to the old 'industrialist' archetype has emerged, the Entrepreneur. Part magnate, part mogul, part venture capitalist; the Entrepreneur is a master of starting up profitable companies, drumming up financial investment, market interest and then turning the whole kit and kaboodle for a profit on a massive (and probably long-withheld) IPO (initial public offering) - making millions if not billions "seemingly overnight". [After spending a few million and months if-not years drowning in debt, sweat and tears]

    As much an expert in their fields as any others who helm their corporate ventures, Entrepreneurs are capable of privatizing, insulating, and monetizing profit in sectors that others can see no upside.

    Their core assets? Aside from the millions that sit in their accounts just long enough to be invested in the next billion-worthy project... their contact lists and their reputation. Even when tarnished, their reputation for PROFITABILITY can carry far more weight. The road from hundreds of thousands to millions to billions is one paved in handshakes and hard stares. The combination of these elements make entrepreneurs the de-facto captains of industry, even in an era when the industries are speculative.

    Worlds: Control, Expert, Espionage
    Roles: Resources, Wealth, Name, Contacts, Fame

    Entrepreneurs make startlingly effective allies and sometimes devastating opponents. Besides their ubiquity in the financial world, a team or intelligence operation that is backed by (or uses) an Entrepreneur has a likely foothold in the world of finance and big-business and an ally who is as adept with a science or indsutry as they are with crafting a public brand.
