U.S. Students' Entrepreneurial Energy Waiting to Be Tapped


This Gallup poll talks more to the issue of job creation, etc. but echoes many of our research findings, and provides more good fodder for focusing on youth.

Among the implications:

Like U.S. adults, the Gallup-HOPE Index data suggest an important segment of the American student population demonstrates attitudes often ascribed to entrepreneurs. Previous Gallup research documents the notion that students may possess good ideas about the future. At the same time, focused efforts to transform these aspirations into reality are not as strong as they could be.
  
Let's get going on creatively and meaningfully engaging youth!
