Entrepreneurship development is the process of improving the skills and knowledge of entrepreneurs, enhancing the capacity to develop, manage and organize a business venture while keeping in mind the risks associated with it. The whole point of entrepreneurship development is to increase the number of entrepreneurs.
Ministry of MSME has been organizing a number of Entrepreneurship and skill development programmes for the existing & potential entrepreneurs, in order to build their capacity to take up successful ventures. ESDPis an important component under the vertical of “Development of MSMEs”, which has been re-structured and re-designed now to bring it in consonance with the changing landscape of the MSME Ecosystem and its present challenges in India.
The objective is to motivate young people representing different sections of society including SC/ST/Women, physically handicapped, Ex-servicemen and BPL persons to consider self employment or entrepreneurship as one of the career options. The ultimate objective is to promote new enterprises, capacity building of existing MSMEs and inculcating entrepreneurial culture in the country.
Office of DC(MSME) through its field offices i.e. Micro Small and Medium Enterprises Development Institutes (MSME-Dls) and Technology centres (TCs) not only caters to the needs of aspiring entrepreneurs across the country but also imparts skill sets to the youth to equip themselves for the job market. However, due to presence of MSME-Dls and TCsonly in the state capitals and few cities, their outreach is very limited.
To enhance outreach and to further- consolidate the enterprise facilitation process, the ‘Enterprise Development Centre (EDC)’ has been conceptualized to provide impetus to the entrepreneurship development initiatives and business incubation of the Office of DC(MSME) through hand holding support to new and budding entrepreneurs in the country.
