Entrepreneurship society is a reflection of profuse changes in individuals’ attitude including career choices and the social contract. These changes emanate from the demographic factors of society. The US witnessed a massive change in people’s attitude and demography in the early 1960s. As a result, the US transformed itself into a leading entrepreneurial society. We address the question: can the demographic features of India explain its aspiration to be an entrepreneurial society in comparison with the other leading entrepreneurial societies in the world? We examine country-level demographic data for seven selected countries. Findings indicate that India’s demographic factors do not correspond to the same features as that of highly entrepreneurial societies.
