Furthermore, the differences in techniques and decision making practices of unsung entrepreneurs and popular companies operating in India have also been looked. The information/data for the above stated purpose was collected through a secondary data from some companies. The main findings extracted from the responses to the questionnaire are, that key decision makers of unsung entrepreneurs are quite aware of and practically using sophisticated capital budgeting techniques. The study shows that bigger size companies give greater preference to IRR, while unsung entrepreneurs rely more on NPV. Also unsung entrepreneurs are keener in estimating the payback period (PP) as compared to larger companies. Consciously or unconsciously the unsung entrepreneurs relying more on debt financing or with high growth rates give more preference to the NPV technique, while low leverage and low growth colleges rely more on IRR. Unsung entrepreneur account for big percentage of Indian jobs and yet most of the studies on capital budgeting techniques have been focused on large firms.
