Woman's Era - - Contents -

In­ter­na­tional Women's Day on March 8 is a day for us women to make new res­o­lu­tions as women and break self-made or so­ci­etal bar­ri­ers. In­case, you have been as­pir­ing to be­come a woman en­tre­pre­neur, you can take the first step in this di­rec­tion by join­ing an en­trepreneur­ship course. Do not be de­terred by views that en­trepreneur­ship can­not be taught, it is a nat­u­ral trait. Im­ple­ment­ing a busi­ness idea suc­cess­fully is tough, and the right train­ing can help min­i­mize chances of fail­ure in this com­pet­i­tive world.

En­trepreneur­ship cour­ses use a com­bi­na­tion of class­room teach­ing with prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence to equip you with ba­sic busi­ness skills needed to run a ven­ture, stream­line oper­a­tions, gen­er­ate rev­enue, un­der­stand le­gal as­pects and fi­nan­cial mat­ters. Most ma­jor univer­si­ties and MBA in­sti­tutes to­day have en­trepreneur­ship cour­ses. On­line pro­grams are also avail­able. UGC also of­fers a dis­tance learn­ing Diploma in En­trepreneur­ship and Busi­ness Man­age­ment. Or­gan­i­sa­tions like the Na­tional En­trepreneur­ship Net­work also of­fer en­trepreneur­ship train­ing and men­tor­ship pro­grams. Por­tals like sheat­work. com pro­vide a list­ing of such en­trepreneur­ship train­ing pro­grams. The Na­tional In­sti­tute for En­trepreneur­ship and Small Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment un­der the Min­istry of Skill De­vel­op­ment and En­trepreneur­ship is en­gaged in train­ing, con­sul­tancy, re­search etc. in or­der to pro­mote en­trepreneur­ship. An en­trepreneur­ship de­vel­op­ment scheme with a fo­cus on ed­u­cat­ing and equip­ping po­ten­tial and early stage en­trepreneurs across In­dia is also be­ing de­vel­oped by the Min­istry of Skill De­vel­op­ment and En­trepreneur­ship. In ad­di­tion, plans to in­te­grate en­trepreneur­ship ed­u­ca­tion into the main­stream cur­ricu­lum in 3,000 col­leges around In­dia are also in the pipe­line.

Renowned man­age­ment thinker Peter Drucker’s fa­mous quote says it best: “The en­tre­pre­neur­ial mystique? It’s not magic, it’s not mys­te­ri­ous, and it has noth­ing to do with the genes. It’s a dis­ci­pline. And, like any dis­ci­pline, it can be learned.”
