With the appearance of entrepreneurship as a major economic force, the field of entrepreneurship education and training had gained legitimacy and had grown substantially. In Namibia, however, the trial of complete academic legitimacy for entrepreneurship development remains. Entrepreneurs and SMEs are considered as change agents in altering economies, and the implication of entrepreneurship and SME development is not often realized and normally ignored. Despite heightened awareness and interest by both scholars and practitioners, entrepreneurship development for entrepreneurs is still an emerging field of inquiry. Furthermore, limited research has so far been conducted on entrepreneurship development for entrepreneurs in the Namibian context. A review of the literature on entrepreneurship development revealed a critical review gap. Therefore, the chapter intends to review critically entrepreneurship development in Namibia and to suggest the way forward regarding entrepreneurship, youth, and entrepreneurs in order to fight poverty and unemployment.
