Abstract

Government policies and programs promote entrepreneurship and investing in new ventures. This paper examines various government policies and programs towards the development of entrepreneurship in Nigeria. A random sample of 1,159 beneficiaries of EDP-NDE programs were selected and structured questionnaires were used to obtain information from the selected EDP-NDE beneficiaries. The result shows that government credit policies and programs have no significant effect on the development of entrepreneurial beneficiaries of the EDP-NDE program. We recommend that governments enforce laws and regulations that link institutional development and the entrepreneurial endeavor and to create an environment that will encourage entrepreneurs to develop business and new ventures.
