INTRODUCTION ON THE PAPER THEME
 At present, the two words Mentorship and Entrepreneurship are gaining prominence tremendously.  Efforts are geared in diverse ways to discussing and to put into practice the issues of mentorship and entrepreneurship at all levels because of the prime roles the issues occupy in shaping the advancement of nations.
   
Therefore, the intellectual development of the society especially the youths is centred in the advancement of any society.  The schools especially higher institutions play very significant roles in this regard.  The academic curriculum and standard is central towards intellectual realization which would empower the would-be ‘Change Agent’ of any society.
   
It is in view of the above that papers are called from academia, institutions/organizations and individuals on the way forward. This has become necessary following the increasing introduction of entrepreneurial studies in institutions of all levels. In addition, we are witnessing tremendous growth in mentoring institutions/organizations all geared towards improving the positive development in the society.

AIM OF THE EDITION
The aim of this edition is to develop academia, practitioners, and institutions who by their active participation would further improve educational standards bordering on issues of mentorship and entrepreneurship and its sustenance for the society and thus strengthen the educational curriculum and standard.
