The growth and development of all economies highly depend on entrepreneurial activity. Entrepreneurs are the nerves of economic development as they provide a source of income and employment. They create an atmosphere of employment generation for others, and produce new and innovative products and services.

Entrepreneurs are not born but can be created and nurtured through appropriate interventions in the form of entrepreneurship development programs. In the modern competitive world, a number of opportunities have emerged from the evolving Information Technology (IT) revolution.
