About The Book

Successful new business ventures and economic development do not just happen. They are the result of the combination of right environment, planning, effort and innovation. And this right mix can only be achieved by entrepreneurs. They provide a clear blueprint for stimulating research, technology and finance to promote enterprises. At the same time, they enrich the eco-system and give a boost to economic growth. Economic growth refers to an increase in a country's production or income per capita, with economy's total output of goods and services being measured by Gross National Product (GNP). At the present situation, our country needs much more than growth. Economic development, on the other hand, goes beyond economic growth to include changes in output, distribution and economic structure which may affect such things as improvement in material well-being of the poor. A country may be rich in material resources and capital but if entrepreneurship is lacking, the utilization of such resources would remain idle. Entrepreneurs are the 'spark plug' who transform the economic scenario of a country. They are the change agents. Entrepreneurship is the engine of economic growth. Entrepreneurship plays a very important role for the economic development of a country. Therefore, it is rightly said that, "an economy is the effect for which entrepreneurship is the cause".
