Amway: Self employment is on the rise


Four out of ten Hungarians are considering launching their own entrepreneurship and becoming their own bosses, naming independence as the main factor, Amway’s research revealed today. The survey shows that the majority of Hungarian entrepreneurs are freshly graduated males, and that Hungarians would be eager to engage in entrepreneurial studies as early as in primary school.

Hungarians' outlook of the country’s economy is also optimistic, as 61% of survey participants said they are positive about becoming an entrepreneur; a rise of 8% as compared to the previous year. They are careful, however, with 66% of participants claiming that the Hungarian market is not entrepreneur-friendly.

The younger generation is more eager to start an entrepreneurship as every seconc participant under the age of 35 could imagine becoming an entrepreneur, while this number was four out of ten in the 35-49 age group, and two out of ten for all those over 50. 

Demand for entrepreneurial educational programs appears to be on the rise. Approximately 61% of participants said that entrepreneurial skills can be acquired, and half of them believe that such subjects should be covered in secondary school and even primary school.
