Entrepreneurship is a creative process in which predetermined goals are achieved using various resources in a systematic and coordinated manner to perform activities in an efficient way. Entrepreneurship is a driving force of the economy. Entrepreneurship provides a main solution to the problems of unemployment and proper utilization of all resources (human and non-human). It plays an important role in improving the standard of living of the people. There is a positive relationship between infrastructure and entrepreneurship. Infrastructure can help to enhance connectivity and linkages that facilitate recognition of entrepreneurial opportunities and the ability of entrepreneurs to actualize those opportunities. Generally entrepreneurial infrastructure includes the facilities and services present within a given geographic area which encourage the birth of new ventures and the growth and development of small and medium sized enterprises. Shed allotment, power supply, road, railways, industrial parks, well funded and structured programmes which provides funding, market support network and business advisory service are part of a robust entrepreneurial infrastructure. Entrepreneurial infrastructure helps to develop strong tradition of self-reliance and entrepreneurship which is critical in starting up new enterprises that create employment and deliver superior services and products. For women, entrepreneurship is essentially a journey out of poverty and towards equality and equity. Women entrepreneurs are increasingly being considered to be an important catalyst for economic development. According to Harbison. F (1965), '˜'any women or group of women which innovates, initiates or adopts an economic activity may be called women entrepreneur''. Not only do they contribute to employment creation and economic growth through their increasing numbers, but they also make a contribution to the diversity of entrepreneurship in the economic development.
