"Businessman" redirects here. For the 2012 Telugu language film, see Businessman (film).

A businessperson (also business person, businessman, business man, businesswoman, or business woman) is someone involved in business, in particular undertaking of activities, commercial or industrial, for the purpose of generating revenue from a combination of human, financial, and physical capital that further fuels economic development and growth. An entrepreneur is an example of a business person. Though the term usually refers to founder, owner, or majority shareholder of a business, sometimes the term can mean someone who is involved in the upper level management role of a corporation, company, organization, or agency. Sometimes it can also mean someone employed in a (usually) profit-oriented enterprise. The term businessperson/man/woman almost always refers to someone with a "white collar" occupation.
