The level of youth unemployment is alarmingly high in several EU Member States, with rates of over 50% recorded in Spain and Greece in 2013. In light of the potential of entrepreneurs to create employment and sustainable growth, promoting youth entrepreneurship and making Europe more entrepreneur‑friendly has recently become a priority on the EU policy agenda. However, research has shown that among young people the wish to become an entrepreneur, and their assessment of its feasibility, is lower in EU Member States than in comparable and emerging economies. This report investigates successful initiatives that have been implemented in five countries in the following areas: fostering an entrepreneurial mindset and culture; removing perceived practical and logistical barriers; and providing information, advice, coaching and mentoring to young would‑be entrepreneurs. As entrepreneurship is not a viable career path for all young people, just for the minority equipped with the right skills, attitudes and values, future initiatives should focus on this target group to ensure the best use of public funds.

    Iværksætterkultur blandt unge – værdier, holdninger og politikker

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound

    I lyset af iværksætteres potentiale for at skabe beskæftigelse og bæredygtig vækst er det blevet en prioritet på EU's politiske dagsorden at fremme iværksætterkultur blandt unge og gøre Europa mere iværksættervenlig. Forskning har imidlertid vist, at unges ønske om at blive iværksættere og deres vurdering af gennemførligheden heraf er lavere i EU-medlemsstaterne end i sammenlignelige økonomier og vækstøkonomier. I denne rapport undersøges vellykkede initiativer, der er blevet gennemført i fem lande på følgende område: fremme iværksættertankegang og -kultur blandt unge, fjerne opfattede praktiske og logistiske barrierer og stille oplysninger, rådgivning, coaching og mentorordninger til rådighed for unge vordende iværksættere. Fremtidige initiativer bør have fokus på personer med de rette kvalifikationer, holdninger og værdier for at sikre bedst mulig udnyttelse af offentlige midler.
