Enterprise has several alternate connotations. It may be defined as some form of undertaking for industrial purposes, for example 'She was unsure of the entire enterprise'.

On the other hand, enterprise could indicate an organization created specifically for business adventures for instance 'A developing enterprise must have a leader with vision'.
Enterprise may also denote a readiness to undertake a new or bold venture.

Any business organization or company may be called an enterprise. An entrepreneur is the head of an enterprise. Free enterprise is another name for functional capitalism and is a type of economy.

Enterprise is also the name of the immensely popular television series. Although initially launched as Enterprise the name of the series was changed to Star trek enterprise. It was a starship led by Captain Jonathan Archer.
