Topics
Business Confidence: 64% Arrow up

A business (also known as an enterprise, a company or a firm) is an organizational entity involved in the provision of goods and services to consumers.

Businesses serve as a form of economic activity, and are prevalent in capitalist economies, where most of them are privately owned and provide goods and services allocated through a market to consumers and customers in exchange for other goods, services, money, or other forms of exchange that hold intrinsic economic value.

Businesses may also be social non-profit enterprises or state-owned public enterprises operated by governments with specific social and economic objectives.

A business owned by multiple private individuals may form as an incorporated company or jointly organise as a partnership.

Countries have different laws that may ascribe different rights to the various business entities.
