Posted by on

A study carried out by Globo shows that 60% of young Brazilians under 30 would like to be entrepreneurs.  The survey also shows that 24% of young people of classes A, B and C already own their own business.

The main reasons that are boosting young people’s desire for entrepreneurship are financial independence, more autonomy, a more flexible working hours and launching an innovative product to the market.

In the group of young people interested in being an entrepreneur, the main points of the research show that:

  • 67% want their own business to have financial independence;
  • 39% in order for more autonomy and not having a boss;
  • 33% with the objective of having more flexible time;
  • 31% to offer an innovative product/service to the market.

The survey was carried out from the 2nd to 5th of March and heard 1500 people in the 16 to 30 age bracket.  The margin of error is 3 percentage points.
