Business Origin

This word comes from the Old English bisignis ‘ anxiety ‘ (to be busy); The sense of “the state of being busy” was used from Middle English to the 18th century, but is now differentiated as busy.

However, unlike the word business, company comes from the Italian “impresa”, which is an action to print something, to project something and make it come true.
