Entrepreneur is a North American magazine and website that carries news stories about entrepreneurship, small business management, and business. The magazine was first published in 1977. It is published by Entrepreneur Media Inc., headquartered in Irvine, California. The magazine publishes 12 issues annually, available through subscription and on newsstands. It is published under license internationally in Mexico, Russia, India, Hungary, the Philippines and South Africa and others. Its editor-in-chief is Amy Cosper and its owner is Peter Shea.
Every year since 1979, Entrepreneur has published a list of its top 500 franchise companies based on a submission and review process. The magazine also published many other lists and awards.
In 1987, the magazine launched its website, Entrepreneur.com, which expanded to include features, contests and other publications and spin-offs. As of 2013, the website received more than 6 million unique visitors each month.
In 2006, unusual web traffic measurements led to allegations that Entrepreneur.com used pop-ups to artificially boost its number of readers.
The company has been involved in many lawsuits regarding its trademark on the word 'entrepreneur', suing a wide variety of entities for using the word. The trademark has generally attracted criticism for being on a commonly used word for which there is no substitute, and the aggressiveness with which it is applied has been noted as somewhat ironic; Business Week asked "why would the publisher of Entrepreneur magazine be bullying entrepreneurs?
