The most pressing challenges that our youth are facing are lack of proper directions, guidance and leadership training and mentorship to empower them.
According to study, 72% of Millennials (ages 18–34) want to start their own business. Studies also show that 64% of high school juniors show signs of interest in starting their own ventures. 77% of students in grades 5-12 say they want to be their own boss, and 45% plan to start their own ventures. 72% of high school students want to start a venture and 61% would rather be an entrepreneur than an employee.
According a survey conducted by EY (formerly Ernst & Young LLP) and the Economic Innovation Group (EIG), the biggest obstacle in the path of Millennials who want to become entrepreneurs is that they don’t have the financial means, followed by fear of the business failing and limited knowledge in business ownership. Same study says, Millennials of today are moving away from business ventures — the new generation is growing to be less entrepreneurial than past generations.
