The growth and prosperity of an economy is highly dependent on the entrepreneurial activities of its people. Entrepreneurs provide employment not only for themselves but also for others. Entrepreneurship is the quality of being an entrepreneur, i.e. one who undertakes an enterprise. The term puts emphasis on the risk and effort taken by individuals who both own and manage a business, and on the innovations resulting from their pursuit of economic success.

India has declared 2010-2020 as the Decade of Innovation. The Government has stressed the need to enunciate a policy to synergize science, technology and innovation and has also established the National Innovation Council (NInC). India’s National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, 2015 aims to bring the world of education and training closer to the world of work so as to enable them together build a strong India. It provides clarity and coherence on how skill development efforts across the country can be aligned within the existing institutional arrangements. The Policy links skill development to improved employability and productivity.

This book provides a comprehensive account of policies and programmes for the development of entrepreneurship and innovations in India in conjunction with the flagship initiative Start-up India.
