Dr. Shacheendran V, Dr. Tomy Mathew
Entrepreneurs are considered as engine of economic growth. They are the central force of economic development in any region. Hence inspiring the individuals towards entrepreneurship assumes great significance. The agencies promoting entrepreneurship focus on entrepreneurial motives of individuals, to attract the potential candidates towards entrepreneurship. Understanding the true motives of individuals for pursuing entrepreneurship as a career choice will help the govt. and other promotional institutions to attract the persons in a right direction to the entrepreneurial ventures. It is often believed that entrepreneurs in a state/country, which is governed by the same set of rules, regulations and policy interventions throughout, are having same or similar entrepreneurial motives. However an empirical study proves that there are regional differences in the entrepreneurial motives.
