The 21st century has been a period of dynamic socio-economic changes in the world due to globalization, internationalization and expansion of organizations satisfying more and more varied customer needs. As the competition is growing, companies operating on the market have to continuously work on their development. The entrepreneurship has been combining knowledge, commitment and technology of the entrepreneur. Entrepreneurial attitude and behavior allow to find yourself on the market and achieve success. That is why entrepreneurship has been the object of interest of many scientists, not only in the field of economics. The aim of this paper was to present a review of Polish definitions of entrepreneurship, an enterprise and an entrepreneur, on the background of foreign historical approaches to entrepreneurship. Despite considerable interest in the subject of entrepreneurship, there is no unambiguous definition of this phenomenon. A common feature of the proposed definitions is the combination of entrepreneurship and business. Multidimensionality of entrepreneurship emphasizes its importance in economic development, as it occurs in all sectors of the economy.
