For Sweden; the battle of Poltava, July 8, 1709
Then perhaps when Sweden lost Finland to Russia in 1809, but I cannot say if Sweden lost anything or if we won something. Just joking
Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.

Battle of Isandlwana 22nd January1879 South Africa.
The British forces were mis-managed by Lord Chelmsford who, among most of the other European officers, completely underestimated the enemy as being a bunch of savages armed with spears
The Zulu, out thought, out maneouvred, out smarted and out fought the most powerful nation in the world at the time.
They were armed mostly with spears, the only firearms they possessed were ancient muskets, but they were masters of the battlefield.
A survivor's account reports the Zulus watching the artillery crew, and when the gunners stood back from the guns, the zulus knew they were going to fire and they threw themselves on the ground to reduce the effect of the shells!
