Every Government all over the world is promoting Entrepreneurial spirits amongst its citizens. For example, Our Government,  aims for a five trillion dollar economy by promoting “Make in India” and Atma Nirbharta.

Other streams can also do all these. But you being a commerce student, has the edge over them. Startups like Start-up India, Make in India are all going on the boom.
