This study attempts to identify factors which positively promote entrepreneurship and business start-up in India with a focus on the mindset of the Indian people, networking, government policy, financial support and entrepreneurship education. It is hoped that the study will benefit the novice entrepreneurs as well as those who desire to be entrepreneurs. The research employs a qualitative research approach through the use of in-depth interviews with Indian entrepreneurs. Data obtained from the in-depth interviews was first transcribed and then analyzed using a matrix system to categorize the information obtained. The interviewees are entrepreneurs in diverse fields which help provide a varied set of data for the study, while at the same time helping to unearth issues from different perspectives.
