What is it?
This report examines the differences between entrepreneurial behaviours of those over and under 35 and reveals an enormous potential for young entrepreneurs.
Some of the findings are that young entrepreneurs are creating greener businesses, promoting more responsible working practices and generating a significant boost to the economy, but only if they are given the right support to start up and grow their business.
The report identifies the following opportunities for policy makers, parliamentarians and the entrepreneurship ecosystem to support young entrepreneurs to unleash their potential as a force for good:
- Create new sources of funding for businesses seeking to address the world's big challenges,
- Bring back support for people who quit their jobs in order to start businesses, and
- Provide more support for entrepreneurs through mentoring and by opening up networks.
