The Entrepreneurs constitute the backbone of any economy. They are driving the economic growth and development at regional, national and global levels. The significance of entrepreneurs is attributable to their calibre for employment generation, capital and technology requirement, promotion of industrial development both in urban and rural areas, use of traditional or inherited skill, use of local resources, mobilization of resources and exportability of products. Be it the large industrial houses or the household rural industries, they take the country on the path of development by contributing significantly towards GDP growth.
