Abstract

As Malaysia enters the twenty first century, interests and concerns about the subject of entrepreneurship has been highlighted among other things. It can be seen through the enormous funding allocation for the promotion of entrepreneurship by the government. Entrepreneurship is seen as a solution to the ever-growing problem of unemployment and low economic standard among the Orang Asli youths. The Orang Asli are the indigenous minority people of Peninsular Malaysia. The name is a Malay term which transliterate as 'original peoples' or 'first peoples'. It is a collective term introduced by anthropologists and administrators for the 18 sub-ethnic groups. This study investigates the degree of readiness towards entrepreneurship among the Orang Asli youth's in Malaysia. The data of the survey was collected from 203 Orang Asli youths from nine different sub-ethnic ; Kintak (n=1), Bateq (n=18), Orang Kuala (n=39), Orang Seletar (n=8), Jakun (n=21), Semelai (n=2), Temuan (n=110), Temiar (n=1), and Jah Hut (n=2). The respondents make up of 3.3 percent of the Orang Asli youths who are living in south of Malaysia (N=6092), from three different states Melaka (n=32), Negeri Sembilan (n=89), and Johor (n=83). The findings of this study show that there is a strong inclination of the Orang Asli youths from the three states to venture into entrepreneurship.
