A report by the Kauffman Foundation confirms 40% of 8-24 year old youth would like to be kid entrepreneurs or adult entrepreneurs instead of employees. The 2010 study shows a slight increase over the 2007 survey.
It could be that today’s wannabe entrepreneurs have more high-profile Internet kid entrepreneurs to encourage them. Perhaps, they also recognize that the knowledge and tools to create wealth are more readily available than at any other time in human history.
Whatever the reason this is a great trend for the USA, as well as the globe. Maybe one day we’ll all be working for our kids.
