“Today, the belief amongst many students at university is that starting a business is a viable career choice and one of the most exciting and challenging things you can do.Young people aged 18-24 are nearly twice as likely as other age groups to aspire to start a business. This aspiration amongst young people has been increasing over time and has virtually doubled between 2002 and 2012”- Lord Young, Enterprise for All, June 2014
