It promotes capital formation and creates wealth in country. Hence, entrepreneurship development is becoming a key policy matter for all economies. However, entrepreneurial intention is a function of entrepreneurial attitudes, which are in turn affected by many variables.

The government too is keen to facilitate entrepreneurship development.
