There is a growing realization about potential contribution of entrepreneurs and the small enterprises promoted by them. Healthy small business sector is rightly considered to be the backbone of any developed economy. Entrepreneurship education and training in most countries of the world is being increasingly tried to promote local entrepreneurship and accelerating the pace of small enterprise development. Developing economies need greater number of people possessing entrepreneurial qualities and capable of taking decisions under conditions of uncertainties. There is an increased emphasis on self-employment and start-ups in the present times and thus a felt need to divert a significant chunk of our educated youth from wage employment to entrepreneurship as an alternative and better career option. This need as has been espoused by the National Policy on Education 1986 and by the National Education Policy 2020 also. This course provides basic knowledge and understanding about the process of entrepreneurship development.
