Economic Development through Entrepreneurship: Learning from Past Experiences

Authors(1) :-Dr. B. S. Hothi

Significant advances and numerous breakthroughs have happened over the last few years in our comprehension of the association between learning and development on one hand, and entrepreneurship and development on the other. Similarly, more noteworthy insights have likewise been picked up with respect to the inter-relationship between entrepreneurship, innovation, and learning. However, an in-depth comprehension is as yet missing concerning the interface of all of those factors: learning, innovation, entrepreneurship, and development. The connection between the micro-economic source of development and the large-scale economic result is still too basic, making it impossible to understand the full size of these mind-boggling and intersecting powers. The main aim of the present paper is to bring to the fore the latest progress in our understanding of the powers that underline the conception and further development of learning in entrepreneurship and by shedding light on its past theories and experiences to develop present understandings.
