Abstract

Entrepreneurship risks are the most important topics that should be considered over implementation of any business. Lack of attention to entrepreneurship risk issues in new business can lead to failure in achieving expected result. According to the fact that risk issues always accompany with uncertainty and also success or failure of entrepreneurship activity seems presumable, we should provide a mechanism to consider the importance of it. The purpose of this study is to make a discussion and prioritize entrepreneurship main risks in non-profit financial funds in Iran based on uncertainty circumstance to identify main risks and then providing suitable control activity to reduce their effect. For this purpose in this paper we propose a method from combination of Todim technique and grey numbers theory to prioritize entrepreneurship risks in non-profit financial funds in Iran. The results show that incompetency of the personnel and managers, is the most important entrepreneurship risk in these funds.
