BACKGROUND 1.1 According to the approach paper to Eleventh Five Year Plan, the private sector, including farming, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and the corporate sector, have a critical role to play in achieving the objective of faster and more inclusive growth. MSMEs, in particular, have a vital role in expanding production in a regionally balanced manner and generating widely dispersed off-farm employment. Further, the approach paper has also emphasized the need for training and capacity building of educated unemployed youth, particularly in the rural and backward areas, as the unemployment has assumed serious proportions. In this context, there is a need to shift focus towards “bottom of the pyramid”. As the market theories are increasingly accepting the fact that wealth can be created simultaneously while helping the people o move out of poverty. 1.2 Entrepreneurship development is one of the key elements for promotion of Micro and Small Enterprises, particularly, the first generation entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship, through creation of wealth, is an important means for empowerment and development. In spite of the best efforts of national and state level entrepreneurship development institutions (EDIs). It is felt that there is a need to fill the gap in providing entrepreneurship training in the selected backward/rural areas and also organizing entrepreneurship development programme (EDPs) for trainees belonging to Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe /Minority/Womem categories, which may have been left out of the network of existing training institutions, In order to bridge this gap, there is a need to encourage the establishment of a large network of entrepreneurship development centers (EDCs), in public private partnership (PPP) mode, all over the country, with special focus on the SC/ST, Minority dominated remote and backward areas. 1.3 Therefore, in order to promote entrepreneurship development in a big way, there is a need that both public and private institutions should be involved in this endeavour, Furthermore, for ensuring the quality of training by the private and local level partner institutions (PIs), there is a need to provide necessary guidance to such PLs by way of providing them standardized course curriculum, good quality training material, capacity building through training of trainers/core faculty, high quality training input from national level experts through e-learning /video conferencing and exchange programmes in collaboration with reputed training institutions/EDIs, as well as a suitable mechanism for joint certification. Involvement of partner institutions for establishment of EDCs can be encouraged by way of evolving suitable tie-up arrangements with the national level entrepreneurship development institutions. 4.
