Based on a 2013 survey of more than 1,500 entrepreneurs from across the G20 countries, a sample that included 1,000 entrepreneurs aged 40 and under, this report presents the views of young entrepreneurs on a wide range of possible policy and other initiatives that might boost their activities. The findings show that young entrepreneurs are optimistic about their future and recognize that their businesses- and many more like them- have a crucial role to play in tackling the youth unemployment crisis.


50% say that promoting the role of entrepreneurs in job creation will have a high impact on entrepreneurship in their countries over the next three years. But young entrepreneurs also warn they must get further support to fulfil their potential. While access to funding remains critical, they stress the need for more innovative funding models, and they consistently urge government agencies to play a more supportive role. They believe in boosting entrepreneurship through education, and they argue that a cultural shift is necessary for entrepreneurship to accelerate.
