Gen Z have been labelled the Generation of Entrepreneurs and recent statistics report that around 75% of Gen Z’s are interested in starting their own businesses. Going straight on into university is no longer seen as the only way to get a good education or create a solid career foundation for oneself.
Why is this? Does it need to be a choice or a question of one or the other? Can you do both? Is it a good idea to swap out of university and jump straight out on your own?
These are just a few of the questions you may ask yourself when deciding on what direction to take after finishing school. Of course it will depend on you as the individual, your aims and your circumstances.
To go into more detail on these questions check out these two interesting articles- ‘Why Gen Z is choosing to skip school in favour of entrepreneurship‘ and ‘Make Way for Generation Z Entrepreneurs Saying No to College’.
