Today, Russia is actively taking steps to popularize entrepreneurship among various segments of the population. Many of them are being implemented as part of the national project “Small and Medium Enterprises and Support for Individual Entrepreneurial Initiative”, which aims to achieve an increase in the number of people employed in the field of SMEs to 25 million by 2024.

The report points out that one of the directions in this context is the promotion of entrepreneurship among young people. The implementation of entrepreneurship support projects and programs is carried out through digital communication channels, involving media personalities.

Among Russian youth, there is also a rise in interest in entrepreneurship as one of the ways to achieve financial independence, the study authors note.

In general, young people much more often than their older compatriots agree that the career of an entrepreneur is attractive (82% versus 70% on average in Russia), being an entrepreneur in our country is prestigious (67% versus 59% , respectively) and finding it fairly easy (37% vs. 32%, respectively).

At the same time, Russian adolescents, while still at school, show high financial and consumer activity: they use financial services, buy various goods on their own.

According to NAFI surveys, 82% of Russian adolescents aged 14-17 have money at their disposal, and 33% have a source of income that does not depend on the family – a side job. On average, the desired average age of the beginning of earnings for boys is 17 years, for girls – 18 years.

According to the NAFI Analytical Center, more than half of students interested in entrepreneurship put off starting their own business due to a lack of relevant knowledge and experience. For the same reason, Russians who do not have entrepreneurs in their family or close circle are half as likely to express their willingness to try their hand at business than those who have such examples before their eyes (26% and 51%, respectively). .

If we talk about areas related to entrepreneurship in which young people do not feel competent enough, we can mention, in particular, ways to ensure personal financial security. When specifying what knowledge and skills they directly lack to start their own business, young people most often mention legal, economic, financial literacy, as well as an understanding of the processes that take place in the market. In addition, young Russians often notice their lack of skills in the field of selling goods or services, the study indicates.

Half of Russian students (50%) do not know what support their universities provide to students who want to become entrepreneurs, and 41% have heard something about it, but without details.
