The history of entrepreneurship is a history of market economy. Thus, entrepreneurship means to take risks, to catch the novelty, to score the opportunities and it is a process to make all them real. In this sense, entrepreneurship is the basic power to move the economy as the main actor of development. On the other hand, the run riot nature of entrepreneurship in terms of profit maximization since 19th. Century necessitates some level of ethics in business life.

This paper aims to discuss a notion that entrepreneurship should be run based on ethics.
