An Internet entrepreneur is an entrepreneur, an owner, founder or manager of an Internet based business enterprise who makes money through risk and/or initiative.[1] This list includes Internet company founders, and people brought on to companies for their entrepreneurship skills, not simply for their general business or accounting acumen, as is the case with some CEO's hired by companies started by entrepreneurs.
