Exploring the nexus between banking sector dynamics and entrepreneurial competency among educated youths

Debajyoti Sarkar and Karbar Riba

The relationship between banking sector dynamics and entrepreneurial competency among educated youths is pivotal for understanding the drivers of economic development and innovation. This study delves into how various facets of the banking sector, such as accessibility to finance, regulatory frameworks, and financial literacy initiatives, influence the entrepreneurial capabilities of educated young individuals. By integrating a comprehensive literature review with empirical data from multiple case studies and quantitative analyses, the research provides a nuanced understanding of this nexus. The findings highlight that access to finance remains a significant barrier for many young entrepreneurs. Despite possessing innovative ideas and a strong educational background, many educated youths struggle to secure the necessary capital to launch and sustain their ventures. The study emphasizes the need for financial institutions to develop tailored financial products and services that address the specific needs of young entrepreneurs, such as microloans, startup incubators, and mentorship programs. Regulatory policies also play a critical role in shaping the entrepreneurial landscape. The research indicates that supportive regulatory frameworks, which include simplified business registration processes and favorable tax policies, can significantly enhance entrepreneurial activity among educated youths. Conversely, stringent and complex regulations often deter young individuals from pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors. Financial literacy emerges as another crucial factor influencing entrepreneurial competency. The study reveals that educated youths with higher levels of financial literacy are better equipped to manage business finances, assess risks, and make informed investment decisions. The research identifies a positive correlation between entrepreneurial competency and the overall economic growth of a region. Educated youths who successfully navigate the banking sector and leverage financial resources effectively contribute to job creation, innovation, and economic diversification. This not only benefits the individual entrepreneurs but also has a broader impact on the community and economy at large.
The study concludes with several policy recommendations aimed at fostering a synergistic relationship between the banking sector and young entrepreneurs. These include enhancing access to finance through innovative banking products, simplifying regulatory requirements, and incorporating financial literacy programs into education systems. Additionally, the research advocates for stronger partnerships between financial institutions and educational entities to create a supportive ecosystem that nurtures entrepreneurial talent among educated youths. This research underscores the critical interplay between banking sector dynamics and the development of entrepreneurial competency among educated youths. By addressing the challenges related to finance, regulation, and financial literacy, policymakers and financial institutions can significantly enhance the entrepreneurial potential of young individuals, driving economic growth and innovation.
