Times are changing rapidly among the youth of today, gone are the days of the daily 9-5 grind and taking insults of your boss for not meeting your tight deadlines. Today more and more youngsters are adopting entrepreneurship as a career. Most interestingly, a sizeable number actually start their ventures much before they complete their formal education.
According to a study conducted by International School of Entrepreneurship Education and Development (ISEED), revealed that more than 87% students surveyed aspire to become an entrepreneur at one point of time in life, while about 90% believe that the country is full of entrepreneurship opportunities. And, about 22% want to start immediately after completing studies, while 32% want to start within five years of completion of their studies. About 12% have already started their ventures during their student life in the areas related to education, entertainment and mobile apps, the study revealed.
Today , with the unstable and precarious circumstances under which the professionals with degrees are hired and fired every day is a frightening figure indeed, hence the youth understand that nothing is promised in the professional world of today , no matter how qualified you actually are. Therefore it is much easier to go after their wildest dreams and aspirations by starting out on their own. Notable examples of Indian and global entrepreneurs like Sachin and Binny Bansal of Flipkart, Mukesh Bansal of Myntra, Kunal Bahl of Snapdeal and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook continue to fuel their ambitions.
The study — ISEED-Indian Students Entrepreneurship Aspirations Survey was conducted among 1117 students in more than 50 cities across the country. Of them, 1,029 respondents were validated. It also stated that only 53% of girls would like to start their own ventures within five years of completion of their studies, as compared with 72% of the boys. There are also very select institutes in the country that offer the time tested and respected courses for entrepreneurship in the country.
The Entrepreneurship Development Institute Of India is well known to nurture and educate the budding entrepreneurs and propel them to launching their own individual businesses.
