Abstract: This paper examined entrepreneurship and education in relationship to the extent to which blind people have been empowered to achieve self-reliance. In doing this, the paper discussed salient issues bordering on the concept of entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship education, and the blind; current practice in education of the blind," what ought to be in order to prepare the blind for entrepreneurship; strategies to achieve entrepreneurship in the blind persons in Nigeria; including the blind in entrepreneurship education; benefits of entrepreneurship education; and the way forward. In conclusion, the paper advanced that the ultimate purpose of any system of education is to help learners to aspire to a set of goals where opportunities for self- reliant, personal satisfaction and social contributions are made feasible; rather than to a theoretical ideal way of life. Finally, the paper suggested that vocational rehabilitation could be provided for blind people who are not capable of benefiting from formal entrepreneurship education.
