if you inheret from a family member, very little. but most of the time you need a high school diploma with few years of college. I believe an associates degree. There is no required amount of education required to open a small business. The opportunity is available to anyone and everyone (at least in the free world). Typically entrepreneurs have a strong work ethic and a strong desire to create happy customers.

Richard Branson did not even complete high school. Yet he went on to create one of the most successful brands in the world: Virgin. Branson was able to accomplish this by utilizing his natural curiosity and desire to create a great product. He also leveraged the knowledge and resources of others. That being said, many small business owners have extensive knowledge in their field from working for other companies. Many colleges now offer courses that specialize in entrepreneurial and small business degrees.
