America’s SBDC recently conducted a survey on the ways different generations approach and perceive entrepreneurship. The findings indicate there is an opportunity for local SBDCs to share their services and expertise in the local business community, with millennials, and using social media.
Here are a few of the survey findings:
- Almost half (49%) of Millennials intend to start their own business in the next three years.
- More than half of Millennials (57%) have no knowledge of Small Business Developments Centers.
- Most (three-quarters) Millennials would be encouraged to start a small business if they knew where to go for help.
- 83% of Millennials don’t know where to go for help.
