Agripreneurs were agricultural entrepreneurs. This study focused on entrepreneurial behavior of women agripreneurs. Namakkal district of Tamil Nadu was selected as it had highest female work participation rate (42.8%). Out of four taluks, Namakkal and Paramathi velur taluk was selected since it had the greatest number of agro-based enterprises. The foremost five agro-based enterprises with all the women agripreneurs were selected. This study revealed that nearly half (47%) of the women agripreneurs fall under medium level of entrepreneurial behavior, 7 per cent under high and 6 per cent under low level of entrepreneurial behavior. It also depicted that educational status, dependency ratio, enterprises related trainings attended by women agripreneurs, mass media exposure, cosmopoliteness, extension participation and credit orientation of women agripreneurs had positive and significant relationship with their entrepreneurial behavior.
