The article explores diverse facets of entrepreneurial development, examining factors such as age, gender, marital status, and company size estimates, as well as its impact on economic growth, unemployment, and societal issues. It also highlights the role of religious institutions and local wisdom in fostering entrepreneurship. The research aims to construct a rural inclusive entrepreneurship model for achieving Village Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), focusing on poverty and hunger eradication and equitable economic growth. The study employs a development research strategy and uses a saturated sampling technique to gather data from the directors and chairpersons of the District BUMDes Forum in Bali Province. Data collection encompasses documentation, village observations, and in-depth interviews with Village-Owned Enterprises’ operational executors. The waterfall method guides data analysis through needs analysis, model design, feasibility testing, implementation, and effectiveness evaluation. Findings underscore collaborative efforts in realizing Village SDGs and identify factors facilitating and hindering the entrepreneurial model’s construction. While abundant resources and government support facilitate construction, challenges include limited competence and entrepreneurial orientation. The study, limited to one BUMDes, suggests potential insights from partnering with diverse BUMDes to inform varied rural entrepreneurship development. Implications extend to policy development, with draft models serving as policy briefs for accelerating Village SDGs across different communities.
