This research work tired to evaluate the extent of development in Entrepreneurship in a depressed economy like Nigeria. A closer and pragmatic approach was used by using Nigerian Association of Small-Scale Industrialists (NASSI) Enugu State Chapter. NASSI has been seen as one of the nations governmental agency involved in manpower development and training and financing small-scale industrialists.
A lot of literatures by different authors were consulted in reviewing the related literatures based on these subheadings.
a.Meaning and history of entrepreneurship development in Nigeria.
b.Meaning and functions of an entrepreneurship
c.Qualities of an entrepreneur
d. Activities of NASSI
e.Problems of NASSI
Nevertheless, Nigerian Association of Small-Scale Industrialists (NASSI) is faced by some problems such as:
ii)Poor means of transportation and communication
iv)Bad road network in Enugu
v)Poor business activities etc
Looking at this the following is being recommended for improving this developmental objective.
a.Government commitment it developing the sector, this giving the much desired self-reliance a priority by investing in the project.
b.The entire citizenry are enjoined to be creative thus being involved in creation of opportunities for self-reliance rather than relying on government and other big companies for their jobs.
c.The provision of an organized loan-revolving scheme, thus making it mandatory for benefactors to repay in time.
d.Nassi should as well try and organize their curricular towards giving trainings that are practical and not theory so as to feel the impact soonest. And finally the need to inculcate into our psych and schema the need to be technologically self-reliant.
However therefore, the research is suggesting that further studies could be done on this by evaluating the impact of small-scale enterprises in the economy. And the prospects of the Nigerian Entrepreneur in a depressed economy.
Consequently, the research solicits for NASSI to be more pragmatic in their operation vis-à-vis the decree of which they were established and then government in its own effort to try and create an enabling environment for entrepreneurship development. In this words Abrahim Maslow (A psychologist known for his theories regarding human needs) “indicated that the most valuable 100 people to bring into deteriorating society would not be economists, or politicians or engineer rather 100 entrepreneurs.”
