A study on positive relationship between age and entrepreneurship intextile industries of JapanResearchers are all the time moreinterested that entrepreneurship as a means to eliminate youth unemployment andto get better financial stability at higher ages. However, only few studies untilnow have examined the relationship between age and entrepreneurial activity. Earlierresearch explained the general negative contact of age on entrepreneurship, butno research has been done on positive contact of age over entrepreneurshipactivities using cross-sectional study. We can develop and test our model in agesbetween (20 to 80) years and our objective is to test, that with course of timeperceived opportunities and skills of an entrepreneur improved which insequence increase entrepreneurship activities in the textile industry. Hereperceived opportunities, and skills, participate as a mediating role betweenage and entrepreneurship activities.
This ultimately could help to reduceunemployment, and improve financial stability in that sector. Research backgroundWhat isentrepreneurship”? Basically entrepreneurship is describes as the finding, assessmentand utilization of new opportunities, new sources to create new ideas andproducts ”.(Shane and Venkataraman, 2000). ”In generally, some previous studies recommendedthe negative contact of age our entrepreneurship as referred by” (levesque and minniti, 2006). Moreover, this negative connection isstill under discussion due to age allied characteristics.Here we will add tothis text using lifespan perspective theory, to examine the positive contact ofage over entrepreneurship activities in textile industries via perceivedopportunities and perceived skills as mediating variables; and our populationis limited to textile industries, in Japan.(Baltesin 1987) ”says that, actually improvement is process of all-time gaining and loosing in mental characteristicsin life, As we know some abilities turndown with passage of age e.

Desire to be excellent entrepreneur is based onentrepreneurship self efficiency (Zhao et al.,2005). So, this self efficiency develop if you have skills, andperceived opportunities, Research question How the age positivelyrelate with entrepreneurship activities? Or How the entrepreneurship activities increase the perceived opportunitiesand perceived skills with passage of age? Definition of key conceptEntrepreneurial activity increases perceived opportunities (i.e.
because people are in the entrepreneurial state of mind once they are engaged in entrepreneurship and as a result persistently perceived new opportunities) and perceived skills (i.e. because managing of business and performing the frequent tasks over long time create self efficiency perceptions).
As with age intelligence and leadership abilities enhance according to theories of leadership development literature and lifespan psychology literature and entrepreneurship ObjectiveIn this research our pointis to test that, with age, skills and perceived opportunities of entrepreneurincrease which in sequence give positive contact on entrepreneurship activities( as we know if entrepreneurship activities increases it would increasebusiness ,or expansion of business which further would help to decrease theunemployment in society and improve the financial stability) MethodologyFirst of all we willdevelop a representative sample of entrepreneur ages between (20 to 80) who areinvolved in textile business for less than 10 years (x<10), another, testmodel in which entrepreneurs are involved In textile business, (10
