Borderless: Equipping Generation Z for an Entrepreneurial Future
Borderless Executive Search shares an article originally posted on Forbes by Serenity Gibbons about today's youngest generation, and where their future careers may lead.
Generation Z is being pushed to have professional experience outside of the classroom and skillsets that are required to be an entrepreneur.
Here's how we can better equip Generation Z for the future in entrepreneurship:
- Campers are creating business pitches: Educational summer camps and programs provide opportunities to explore various topics and determine whether they're interested before pursuing a career
- University entrepreneurship programs are providing mentors and connections: Students can test new ideas in an academic setting without the fear of real-world failure.
- Social platforms are engaging entrepreneurs: Social media is engaging young people and is a platform to share business stories and things to learn.
- Educational resources are going digital: Online classes, advice on YouTube, and less traditional forms of education help Generation Z on their path.
