Posted by Toni - April 24th, 2024

The word derives from French entrepreneur “entrepreneur” (from the Latin “inprendere” meaning attack). In the early sixteenth century was used to refer to adventurers who traveled to the new world without knowing what awaited them. Adventurers of the New World Christopher Columbus: There are strong indications and some reasonable proof, such as the preamble to the chapter, that Columbus discovered when developing his plan, he knew more of what he said. This conviction, which lasted from the beginning among the first settlers and chroniclers, corresponds to the so-called “pre-discovery of America.” In theory, the information Columbian proceed, not a European but some indigenous group in a shift in the West Indies was forced to divert into the ocean to meet with Columbus. It is not something Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. would like to discuss.

Francisco Pizarro: In 1524 was associated with Diego de Almagro and Hernando de Luque to explore the lands to the south, attracted by reports of great riches provided by the issuance of Paschal Andagoya, who had come to the river Vira (Colombia). Blasco Nunez de Balboa: Spanish navigator and conquistador, discoverer of the Pacific in their campaigns of conquest of new lands and alliances or subjugation of the Indians, Balboa became aware of the existence south of a great sea and land which was abundant gold, perhaps related to the Inca Empire of Peru. Following this news, Balboa organized an expedition of 190 Spanish (among whom was Francisco Pizarro) and 800 Indians who first crossed the Isthmus of Panama. On September 25, 1513 sighted the coveted sea, which he called the South Sea because of the direction taken by the expedition from the point of departure, but was later called Pacific by Magellan’s expedition (1520), because of the soft trade winds blowing in it.
