    [Commerce] Differences between "enterprise" and "venture"?

    Hi, teachers:

    The question I'm asking may need a bit commerce knowledge. I wonder what's the differences between "enterprise" and "venture"?

    Just bumped into a term in an article "large institutional catering ventures", what if I say "large institutional catering enterprises"? What differences does it make?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    I don't think there is any real difference in your examples. To me 'venture' has more of an idea of risk involved; I would probably use it only of a business in the fairly early days of its existence. That's a personal answer, not an expert's.
