With the economy mostly healed from the recent recession, more millennials are choosing to forge their own path in the business world. According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, a joint venture between Babson College and London Business School, 18 percent of Americans age 25 to 34 launched or ran a small business in 2014, compared to 15 percent in 2013.
The traits that define the typical millennial—idealistic, confident, environmentally conscious, self-absorbed, creative—coincidentally lend themselves to entrepreneurship. Add a little tech savvy and the exuberance of youth, and you have the demographic potential to redefine the small business community and the economy overall.
