The development of any nation lies in the hands of the youth of the country who are going to be the architects for the future. Development cannot happen in isolation and also cannot be achieved by individuals. Development is a collective effort and it has to be channelized in the right direction. India is one of the countries with a high population of youth with tremendous potential. Though, we are in the verge of becoming a super power and are proud of all the achievements in various areas, there are still some issues and barriers which halts or slows down the progress. One such issue is “UNEMPLOYMENT”. Entrepreneurial skills are being talked about abundantly but the talks are mostly around “Technology” and “Technical skills”. Entrepreneurial activities are looked at in synonym to business opportunities in a small scale and mostly the output is a product which is sellable. In a different angle, Entrepreneurs are those using some innovative technology to create a business opportunity with a profit
Though, the purpose of generating employment is satisfied, the bigger question is the sustainability and also the impact that the business or the activity is going to have on the future of the nation. Social entrepreneurship is about innovative, people-oriented approaches underpinned by a passion for social equity and environmental sustainability. Ultimately, social entrepreneurship is aimed at transformational systems change that tackles the root causes of those issues which have an impact on the development of the society and the nation at large.
