A well developed Small and Micro Entrepreneurship sector has proven to be one of the most veritable channels to combat poverty and making society economically independent.

A large number of people are looking forward for new economic opportunities and the means to take up Self Employment/Entrepreneurship. All developing countries are increasingly realizing this need for attaining economic self-sufficiency. The strengthening of SMEs is important not only for export promotion but also import substitution. The upliftment of SMEs can reduce the chronic problem of unemployment and, at the same time, satisfy the starving markets for a wide range of products. Over the last few years, Governments, NGOs and donor agencies have become aware of the acute necessity of developing Entrepreneurship for the economic balancing of a Nation. Promoting SMEs thus needs an integrated approach, requiring identification and adoption of appropriate methodologies and capability building in Entrepreneurship Development.
