2. Scope: The entrepreneurs are close to their markets and share many of the customer’s experiences.

8. Personalization: Entrepreneurs are more personal. The today connected world demands to connect the customer more and not just providing products and services. Entrepreneurs can convey a sense of belonging.
9. Passion: Most entrepreneurs have great passion for their product and services and convey that purpose and contagious passion.
