Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new organizations or revitalizing mature organizations, particularly new businesses generally in response to identified opportunities. Entrepreneurial activities are substantially different depending on the type of organization that is being started. Entrepreneurship ranges in scale from solo projects (even involving the entrepreneur only part-time) to major undertakings creating many job opportunities. It is affected by many factors which we have studied in this paper. The sample group (N=251) consists of female (N=101) (45%) and male (N=150) (55%).150 urban and 101 rural students' sample were taken. 150 students belong to technical and 101 students from non-technical courses. Age range of students divided into two groups: 16-20 and 21-25. Gender and background were found to have significant effect on entrepreneurship behaviour.

Abstract


Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new organizations or revitalizing mature organizations, particularly new businesses generally in response to identified opportunities. Entrepreneurial activities are substantially different depending on the type of organization that is being started. Entrepreneurship ranges in scale from solo projects (even involving the entrepreneur only part-time) to major undertakings creating many job opportunities. It is affected by many factors which we have studied in this paper. The sample group (N=251) consists of female (N=101) (45%) and male (N=150) (55%).150 urban and 101 rural students' sample were taken. 150 students belong to technical and 101 students from non-technical courses. Age range of students divided into two groups: 16-20 and 21-25. Gender and background were found to have significant effect on entrepreneurship behaviour.
