Three quarters of respondents in the Train My Generation survey were interested in starting their own business, seeking either to develop their own idea or work for themselves. Das hohe bevölkerungswachstum, die folgen einer unrentablen planung und die abwanderung von fachkräften verhindern eine positive wirtschaftliche entwicklung… Ambition was also high, with over half of the entrepreneurs questioned saying that in 10-15 years they see themselves running a business of 15-40 people. But there are significant barriers to starting new businesses, including access to start-up capital, support for start-ups from the government, and high levels of bureaucracy and red tape. How do we reduce these barriers to the next generation of entrepreneurs?
