Author(s): Seema Singha, Soma Roy Dey Choudhury, Brajesh Kumar

Foreign Direct Investment and entrepreneurship are important factors of economic growth and development. On the one hand, entrepreneurship contributes to employment generation, GDP per capita, reduces regional imbalances, etc. FDI brings capital, technology, and knowledge to accelerate entrepreneurial activities on another hand. This paper collects data from MSME Annual report(s), and FDI fact sheet(s) from DIPP and GEM. We assessed the role of inward FDI for the period 2006-2019 and used the fixed effects & random effect model to analyze the panel data. The result shows that there is no significant impact of FDI on Entrepreneurial activities. At the end of this paper, there is a policy recommendation to enhance the reach of FDI in Entrepreneurial activities.
