Description This paper discusses raw material development and utilization as a basisfor economic development through entrepreneurship and small andmedium enterprises (SMEs) development in Nigeria. SMEs have playedand will continue to play significant roles in the growth, development andindustrialization of many economies the world over. SMEs have performedbelow expectation in Nigeria due to a combination of problems. Theseinclude lack of equipment, which have to be imported most times at greatcost. Inability of SME operators to penetrate and compete favorably in theexport markets is another issue, which could be attributed to poor-qualityproducts and ignorance of export market strategies. Other times, it couldbe networks or lack of appropriate mechanism and technology to process,preserve and package the products for export. Promoters of SMEs,therefore, should make available new methods of processing raw materialoccurring naturally in local environment as a basis for entrepreneurshipdevelopment.
