Entrepreneurs are especially talented persons capable of identifying projects, marshalling resources, innovating ideas, assuming risks and establishing ventures. In these days of highly uncertain business environment and highly sophisticated information technology, prospective entrepreneurs have to be inspired and motivated to take up some self-employment ventures and thereby create employment opportunities for many people.
The main objective of the present book entitled “DEVELOPMENT OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT” is to serve as an invaluable guide to all those who want to enter into the entrepreneurial arena. It is also designed and developed in accordance with the New Revised CBCS syllabus prescribed for the Economics paper of Indian Universities. The salient features of this book are: 1. Presentation of various aspects of entrepreneurship in a simple language and lucid style. 2. Logical arrangement of chapters in an adequate manner.3. Exhaustive coverage of project reports and its appraisal comprehensively and critically. 4. At the end of each chapter, Key concepts and Model questions have been given to test the students understanding of the subject.
The book occupies special advantage of excellence, a practical significance in India. I have made an earnest attempt to make the chapters’ error free and reader friendly. However, I believe that perfection is an achievable ideal, but not an achieved one. Hence, I invite your comments and constructive suggestions, if any, for future use.
