Entrepreneurship is one of the most challenging and uplifting strategies in escalating number of areas associated with multiple trajectories of development. Being an entrepreneur is quite competitive and challenging. An entrepreneur is a well-established, optimistic personality who boldly accept challenges and learns through vulnerability. When it comes to a yet developing nation, the risk of deciding to be independent would be more problematic. Although, the entrepreneurship is a remarkable milestone to take turns which directly involves in employment and job opportunities. A successful entrepreneur would be a fine diamond to the nation and the field of innovation.

When considering a much more optimistic view on entrepreneurship, it accompanies the development of the field of innovation by stabilizing both internal and external Economic, Educational, and socio-cultural growth contribute towards the employment. A reliable environment ensures much functional platforms for young apprentices to elaborate. Eventhough the concept is quite strange for yet developing nations, it is profitable to enhance the awareness on areas associated. Increased awareness could be a turning point to be more independent, mitigating the psychological stress and low- self-esteem whereas the government and the existing entrepreneurs play a huge role in intervention. Entrepreneurship goes hand in hand with rising leadership qualities and attributes to experience the world in a new dimension. The structural modifications to the systematic approaches such as self- employment would be referred to more extended and vast range of active participations. Number of customizable areas for entrepreneurship have been blocked as a negative impact of socio- cultural distortions such as gender- biases, inadequate support, inability in adapting to the environment, power concentration and inaccessibility. Gender biases are relatively common, yet less permeable to be addressed in a multicultural territory. Sri Lanka is considered as one of the third world developing nations falls under the south Asian region. Eventhough, it has been recorded as highly literate, the formal education and innovative opportunities are comparably restricted for females due to an unnecessary cultural intervention. Moreover, Domestic violence, child marriage, sexual harassments, economic instability, child slavery and abuses are relatively increased in south Asian nations such as India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, seizing the ability to think of innovations and entrepreneurship. Even if the educational alternatives are fulfilled, there is a huge tendency to be enrolled into the job market as employees on purpose of providing their families and defending themselves by attaining daily needs. Inadequate support of familial and non- familial
environments holds no surprise in third world developing nations. Since the economy is fluctuating, the gross national income deviates, which complementary affects the decreased per capita income. Decreased per capita income remarks a significant deficit in quality of daily living. Adaptations also matters in Entrepreneurship. Origination of a journey might find lots of disruptions, although an ingenious personality begins to learn and adapt to the circumstances considering the upcoming challenges as investments. It is difficult to remain in the competitive field unless the individual has adapted to the promontory period. Power concentration and the political interference also play a huge role in entrepreneurship. Most educated and innovative minded Apprentices get excluded and lose the rudimentary space to be stabilized as independent personalities due to the unacceptable political dominance. Deadliness, unexpected pressure, threats, and socio- economic implications pressurize them towards the employment rather than attending to the entrepreneurship. Accessibility is the most overwhelmed title which is being excluded by typical socio- cultural mainstream over generations. Educational dynamics, social isolation, restricted opportunities, and barrier for entrepreneurship are found to be commoner in people with all types of disabilities, yet no substantial remediations are established. As stated in united nation’s convention, disability refers to a vast range of long-term physical, mental, intellectual, or sensory impairments. Those also include significant deficits in associated areas such as participation, interaction, and functioning, although equity and empowerment have acquired a huge persistence in sustainable development which straight away effects the stabilization of the nation.

Entrepreneurship is the basis of sustainability, involves number of areas such as exports, investments, poverty reduction, and higher employment. All the aspects included in a sustainable environmental protocol emphasizing the inclusion. Since the perspectives are multidimensional, people are more prone to create multifactorial assumptions. The unity and the overall participation are found to be more effective and beneficial in establishing a synergistic mutual incooperation. In the case, the opinion of maximizing the opportunities for everyone, needs to be prioritized regardless of the condition itself. Considerably there are numerous burdens for disability even in the most basic attempts. The most known barriers would be difficulties in accessing locations, discrimination, and limitations in creating inter-relationships with contemporaries. The society itself restricts the opportunities to be initiative, interpreting the people with disabilities as introverts who seek sympathy. When it comes to the women with disabilities, the chance of been neglected is quiet high in number. The potential to be underestimated is even more due to the highly considered intersectionality. There is a huge viability for them to be abused mentally and physically, causing social isolation, frustration, and depression. Socio- cultural manifestations emphasize certain  oppositions on creating disability-friendly empowerment programs on entrepreneurship. Limitations in functioning, low productivity and limitations in executive abilities are considered as the most prominent. In femininity, some additional barriers such as sexual briberies can also be identified. Even for men with disabilities, there are number of restrictions as for females.

Educational exclusion plays a huge role in social engagement regardless of both genders. Many nations, specifically included in Asian region, have neglected the responsibility on enhancing the quality of life uplifting the accessibility to formal education. Eventhough there are no significant pre-requisites for future management and entrepreneurship frameworks, early childhood achievements and experiences found to be effective on building confident personalities. Education refers to a vast range of performances, yet children with disabilities receive reduced opportunities to be enrolled into the mainstream. Special education units and schools found to be less in number comparison to the number of children who are experiencing various disabilities and limitations across the globe. Enhancement of Individual independence of people with disabilities also relies on the well-established awareness and governmental stabilization. Whilst addressing the gaps in between typical individuals and individuals with disabilities relating the entrepreneurship, it is important to eradicate misconceptions and myths. In European nations, equity and companionship is well prioritized to the point of cooperation and optimum participation. The entrepreneurship develops through various well-established mnemonics, specifically from most primitive aspects. Self-esteem, gratification, clarity of vision and dedication decide the amount of success achieved as an entrepreneur. Even in the vision of disability, the combination of higher self -esteem and confident individuality finds nothing challenging to be a successful entrepreneur.
