Youth development and workforce development programs should be interested in a recent online survey of youth and young adults that shows a strong level of interest in entrepreneurship, even in the current poor economy.
The Kauffman Foundation commissioned this poll that indicates 40 percent of the 8 to 24 year old participants have started a business or would like to in the future. Over half of the respondents knew someone who had started a business and approximately 75 percent felt that hard work was the main factor in entrepreneurial success. Additional findings from the survey can be found at The Kauffman Foundation website.
