Hemantkumar P. Bulsara, Shailesh Gandhi, and P. D. Porey
Abstract—Entrepreneurship is very crucial for every economy. While talking about Entrepreneurship, most of the people mainly focus on various aspects of business but forget about tendency towards entrepreneurial traits or characteristics. Enterprising Tendency is one of the most important parts of an Entrepreneurship. The aim of the paper is to study tendency towards entrepreneurial characteristics of entrepreneurs. In this paper, the comparative study of an Enterprising Tendency with the help of General Enterprising Tendency Test (GETT) and four cases in Gujarat, India was presented. The GETT was conducted on four lead entrepreneurs of the select cases. The result of the same are listed in the paper. The tendency towards characteristics of the entrepreneurs is also judged subjectively through analysis of the cases. Hence, both objective and subjective analysis are matched in the paper. The results show that there is considerable matching between both. This paper would be useful to understand importance and behavior of tendency towards entrepreneurial characteristics which are required to be a successful entrepreneur.
