empreendimento


Explanation:
This is the most literal translation. Sometimes the word "empresa" (normally translated as "company") might be used. Or "initiativa" (initiative).
The verb is "emprender."

The leading monolingual Brazilian dictionary (remember, I'm not talking about Portugal...) uses "empresa" in the definition. The second meaning translates, basically, as "effect of undertaking something; that which is undertaken and carried through to the end; achievement, commitment."

My Lisbon dictionary gives the same thing, basically, but I supposed there could be a difference in the generality of usage of the term "empreendimento" between Portugal and Brazil.
