A point was made that 16 lakh students are graduating every year Only 10 percent are showing interest in entrepreneurship. Some laments this state of affairs. Is it a cause for worry?
According to me it is not. What is important is the environment provided by the society to the 1.6 lakh students who want to be entrepreneurs. Instead of celebrating the fact that 1.6 lakh students are willing to become entrepreneurs and making efforts to make them successful, we spend money to promote more entrepreneurship and then make 80% of them failures.
Promoters of entrepreneurship have to change their thinking.
