20 under 20: New research reveals that almost half of young people aged 16-25 in the UK have changed their career plans since the lockdown started. More than half find the concept of launching their own business appealing.
22% of those who have started, or are considering starting their own business, have come across a problem during lockdown that makes them want to start their own business. In addition, 41% claim that ‘feeling passionate about their business’ is a key driver for their ambition.
