Avoiding a lost generation is a white paper from EY that analyzes the challenges and issues facing young entrepreneurs in the G20 markets. As economic recovery remains fragile in many countries, concerns over low or negative growth are being compounded by rising levels of unemployment, especially among young people. Governments are increasingly looking to entrepreneurs and start-ups to both kick-start their economies and provide the jobs that will sustain growth.
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.
