According to research commissioned by VC firm Octopus Group and Entrepreneurs Network, 51% of young people aged between 14 and 25 said they would like to start their own business and 60% among the 20 – 25 year olds.   The top motivations are ‘a desire to be your own boss’ 86%, ‘freedom to do what I want’  84%  ‘being passionate about a particular idea or cause’ 83% and wanting to make the world a better place and/or a positive difference’ 76%.
