Entrepreneurship Training in the Apparel and Fashion Design Sector through Distance Mode: A Strategy for Facing the Challenge of Growing Unemployment in India
Community Development 2.1 // Globally, the micro and small enterprises (MSEs) are considered the engine of economic growth and, MSEs constitute over 90% of total enterprises in most of the economies. MSEs have the highest rates of employment growth that too at low capital cost. Research studies on small firms and entrepreneurship (Thurick, 1994; Reyonlds et al. 2001, 2002; Gorman et al. 1997; Bruyat and Julien, 2000, Heinonen, J. et al; Sunter, 1994) and the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (Reynolds et al., 2001) emphasize that the small firms are the real driving force behind economic growth and creation of millions of jobs. An entrepreneur through an enterprise generates conditions for: a. increasing opportunities for employment (comprising various competitive skill sets); b. additional wealth creation; c. introduction and dissemination of new methods and technology; and d. overall economic growth (http://www.knowledgecommission.gov.in/downloads/documents/NKC_Entrepreneurship.pdf). The definition of entrepreneur as a person who earns money using the available resources so as to cater to his or her financial needs while also creating opportunities for other people to get employed highlights the relation of entrepreneurship with that of economic development and the reduction of unemployment (http://www.brighthub.com/office/entrepreneurs/articles/40916.aspx) // Keeping in view the importance of the MSEs for the economic growth and employment generation, it is proposed to discuss the strategy for entrepreneurial training in fashion and apparel design.
