Most Used Word for "Entrepreneur"

I’ve come across two words for “entrepreneur”: 起業家 (KiKyouka) and 自前 (JiMae) but am not sure which is more commonly used by people in modern language. Any idea which one is more commonly used by people? I’m trying to not sound robotic or textbook-like when I speak/type.

Thanks!

起業家 (actually きぎょうか) seems way more popular, both on twitter and google trends.

Ahh! I just realized I misspelled it in English :sweat_smile: Sorry, it’s been a long day. I just got off a 15 hour flight to Japan and was probably too jet lagged to be posting anything lol.
Thanks!
