Author: R. K. Jena

The role of creativity characterises entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship as a topic is very frequently discussed in India. It is one of the influencing factors for India’s modern social economy and prosperity. But all sections of the Indian population, particularly disabled people, are not very confident about self-employment through entrepreneurship. Encouraging them to opt for entrepreneurship as a career is a way to achieve faster economic growth. This study analysed the crucial barriers to growth in disabled entrepreneurship in India by applying the Decision Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) method. The result showed that self-belief is the most crucial barrier to disabled entrepreneurs’ growth.
