For the love of entrepreneurship

Here’s an interesting fact to start the day. According to the results of a new snapshot survey of EY emerging entrepreneurs undertaken by the Kauffman Foundation, it would appear that these exciting new emerging entrepreneurs are primarily motivated by a love of entrepreneurship itself. These entrepreneurs may start their companies for a wide range of reasons, but the most common is that they simply love the notion of being an entrepreneur (69 percent). For many, the idea of being their own boss and in charge of their own destinies, was the key decision-making factor in them taking the leap and starting their own businesses. Other common motivations included wanting to find a solution to a problem that they faced or they saw potential customers or society facing, or because they thought they could provide a product or service better on their own.
