A business is an entity that engages in commercial, industrial or professional activity with the goal of making profit. Businesses may be for-profit or not-for-profit. The most common way for businesses to make money is by selling goods or services. Other ways to make money include charging fees for services, renting space or equipment, or obtaining loans and investments. Businesses can be incorporated, owned by individuals or organizations, and range in size from small sole proprietorships to large multinational corporations.
