Abstract

Entrepreneurship has become a major concern to both researchers and policymakers because of its significant role in socio-economic transformation. Several researchers have suggested that in India and Afghanistan a combination of factors including regional disparities, religion, culture, values and education have shaped the spirit of entrepreneurial orientation. It is pertinent to investigate the entrepreneurial intention of educated youth of Afghanistan and India where the policy makers are looking upon young population as future pool of entrepreneurs and employment creators. To study these factors, a research study was conceptualized which aimed at investigating the impact of external environment, socio-cultural and personal factors responsible for entrepreneurial orientation among Afghani and Indian youth. This study aimed to examine different factors responsible for entrepreneurial intentions with exploratory factor analysis. To reach the study goals the researchers used cross-sectional survey methodology in which a questionnaire was distributed to 110 young entrepreneurs and students in Afghanistan as well as in India. The analyses categorized main factors like 1) Use of educational tools in pedagogies for the entrepreneurial orientation 2) Role of family in entrepreneurial orientation 3) Cultural dimension of entrepreneurial orientation 4) Governmental support and Bottlenecks in the entrepreneurial orientation and 5) Personal factors in entrepreneurial orientation. Several important findings from comparative analysis of opinions of Afghani and Indian are also included in the study. The paper concludes with suggesting strategies for fostering entrepreneurial orientation among youth of both countries with intervention of the government and the education sector.
