The School Of Entrepreneur Development is a virtual on-line school that identifies entrepreneurs in the semi-urban and rural parts of India (In Phase I).

Today the need for Entrepreneurs in this society is highly felt. Thanks to the lackadaisical approach of Education Reforms in most Indian Institutions, the Graduate student is faced with the problem of Being Unemployable even though Education per se is touching more and more Indians.

Being Educated does not guarantee Employment and being employed does not gaurantee that one is happy with what one is doing. It is this quest, this inner compass that is within our selves that guides us to what we want to do best with our lives.

More and more youngsters are wanting to be on their own. They have the power of the Internet, the power of computing and the willingness to do more.

Thus, the School of Entrepreneur Development, was born.

The difference between this School and any other is that while the student is learning the student is also earning. The School of Entrepreneur Development hopes to become one of the most connected e-commerce networks, the most happening information network and the most influential distributor of products, produce and information.

Your support in creating this could change the destiny of many thousands of hopeful folks.

Ladies and Gentlemen, The School of Entrepreneur Development.

We found that this method of learning is effective. The system of ‘ Learning while Doing, in real life situation’ adopted by SED, involves doing community service work in real life as part of education. Education and Development have been integrated
