Abstract: Entrepreneurship means different things to different people, but entrepreneurship has become one of the most important ways to succeed in today’s competitive business environment. This study assesses an entrepreneur’s readiness and probability of success using an expert system. Specifically, entrepreneurs can assess themselves by responding to fifty statements, categorized into ten different skills. These fifty statements were developed by a human expert in the entrepreneurship domain. Thus, this study assessed the development of this proposed expert system through a questionnaire evaluation of users and experts who tested the system.

Keywords: Enterpreneurship; Expert System; Entrepreneurs; Knowledge and Field of Entrepreneurship.
