Creator + Entrepreneur = Createur, Gen. 1:1 - "In the beginning God created ..."

The Call of the Entrepreneur to Create Something for Good.

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters." Genesis 1:1

God is the ultimate and first entrepreneur, and He showed us His innovation and creativity when He created the world. So likewise, the Creator God desires us, as entrepreneurs, to create.
