    It all depends on who the entrepreneur is, the focus of the interview, and what you want to learn about the entrepreneur. Questions for a home-based entrepreneur who started his/her business on a shoestring is different from questions for an entrepreneur who got VC financing for his venture. But here are some basic questions you can ask: - What inspired you to start this business? - How and where did you get this idea for a business? What need did you see? - If this business is similar to other businesses (e.g. clothing line), then how different is this business from the others? What makes this business stand out from the rest? - How did you finance the business? - How difficult was it to get investors? How did you find investors for your business? - What are your marketing strategies for this business? - How are you managing your time? - What was the most difficult part of starting the business? - What are your expectations for the future with regards to this business? - What lessons do you give other entrepreneurs? It really depends on what you want to know about the entrepreneur
