It is about the competencies of individuals and the capabilities of enterprises.

Individualpreneurship (individual entrepreneurship)
Individualpreneurship is a discipline, a mindset, and an activity whereby an individual (the “individualpreneur”) behaves as an enterprise in their own right.
Whereas solopreneurs are independent professionals, individualpreneurs can have multiple businesses and can employ other people.
An individualpreneur develops multiple income streams from many sources. Thus, the individualpreneur is better hedged against uncertain economic, regulatory, and social conditions than those individuals who rely upon primarily on one source of income.
Individualpreneurship (individual entrepreneurship) is a discipline, a mindset, and an activity for income generation for the fully-employed, self-employed, under-employed, and unemployed, whether working for somebody else, for themselves as sole-practitioners, while planning the next ventures, or just in-between opportunities.
The discipline includes activities for developing and managing multiple sources of income, without losing focus on any. Sources of an individualpreneur’s income include: employment, entrepreneurship/business ownership, and investing. An individual behaves as an enterprise in their own right, and as such builds their individualprise (individual enterprise). In effect, the individualpreneur is in business for themself. Whereas solopreneurs are independent professionals, individualpreneurs can have multiple businesses, can be employed, and can employ others.
