The present study entitled “Information seeking behaviour of selected woman entrepreneurs of Parbhani city” was conducted in the Parbhani city. For this study 200 woman entrepreneurs were randomly selected from Parbhani city. Scale developed by using normalized rank approach to obtain the Entrepreneurial Behaviour score. After obtaining the E.B. scores with the developed questionnaire an entrepreneurial behavior index was calculated. It was found that mean score of behavior of the selected respondents was very low for their participation in information seeking. There was no single effective information source always contacted by the selected respondents for seeking information regarding entrepreneurship. Information seeking was high among the young (20 to 25 years) and educated (post graduate) respondents. Respondents having high income (more than Rs. 21168) were earned more monthly average profit (more than Rs. 3839). Age was negatively correlated with the information seeking, while education, income and social participation of the respondents were the highly significantly correlated factor with the information seeking behavior of the respondents.
