Creating Indian Entrepreneurs
A recent Mckinsey & Company-Nasscom report estimates that India needs at least 8,000 new businesses to achieve its target of building a US$87 billion IT sector by 2008.
Similarly, in the next 10 years, 110-130 million Indian citizens will be searching for jobs, including 80-100 million looking for their first jobs.
This does not include disguised unemployment of over 50% among the 230 million employed in rural India.
Since traditional large employers- including the government and the old economy player-may find it difficult to sustain this level of employment in future, it is entrepreneurs who will create these new jobs and opportunities.
Today’s knowledge based economy is fertile ground for entrepreneurs, in India.
It is rightly believed that India has an extraordinary talent pool with virtually limitless potential to become entrepreneurs.
Therefore, it is important to get committed to creating the right environment to develop successful entrepreneurs.
To achieve this, India must focus on Four areas as follows……………….
The Four Areas Create the Right Environment for Success Ensure that Entrepreneurs have access to the Right Skill Ensure that Entrepreneurs have access to ‘Smart Capital’ Enable Networking and Exchange
The Future of Entrepreneurship
Both the Central Government and various State Governments are taking increased interest in promoting the growth of entrepreneurship.
Individuals are being encouraged to form new businesses and are being provided such government support as tax incentives, buildings, roads, and a communication system to facilitate this creation process.
The encouragement by the central and state governments should continue in future as more lawmakers are realizing that new enterprises create jobs and increase the economic output of the region.
Every state government should develop its own innovative industrial strategies for fostering entrepreneurial activity and timely development of the technology of the area.
The states should have their own state-sponsored venture funds, where a percentage of the funds has to invested in the ventures in the states.
Society’s support of entrepreneurship should also continue.
This support is critical in providing both motivation and public support.
A major factor in the development of this societal approval is the media.
The media should play a powerful and constructive role by reporting on the general entrepreneurial spirit in the country highlighting specific success cases of this spirit in operation.
