Introduction:

The level of economic growth of an economy finds its strong roots into the level, strength and intensity of the entrepreneurial activities on its soil. In order to sustain the entrepreneurial activities, there are requirements for the able support and promotion of emerging technological and knowledge-based innovative ventures that may imbibe the nurturing of ideas from professionals beyond the traditional/ conventional activities of the enterprises. The entrepreneurial ideas have to be fostered and developed in a conducive environment before they become attractive for the purpose of commercialization; besides a continuous technological and managerial support have to be provided.

In the above perspective, the SMVDU has established Entrepreneurship Development Cell, SMVDU. The academic institutions, which are leaders in developing human resources with some modulation and change in focus could churn techno-entrepreneurs on a continuous basis, which accelerates the process of economic development and growth.
