Entrepreneurship programs are popping up in more and more post secondary institutions as this generation becomes more prone to starting their own business than any before it.
This infographic from Neil Spencer at Intuit.com paints a clear picture of the occurrence. According to the infographic, there are 165 million early stage entrepreneurs aged 18-25 in the United States. Nearly 90% of young people value entrepreneurship education and think it is important to their future.
Whereas previous generations were interested in acquiring skills that would land them a job, this generation is interested in gaining the skills and vision to create their own opportunities.
The infographic points to a lack of resources as the leading reason for young people not starting their own business.
