Some 79% of Hungarian children aged 8-14 want to start their own business and run it as a full- or part-time job, Visa told state news agency MTI, based on new research.
According to the digital payment service provider, only 6% of this age group want to work as an employee.
The first members of the age group born after 2010 will enter the labor market within four years.
These children imagine a much smoother, more comfortable world, the research shows.
Some 55% of Hungary's Alpha generation earned money in the last 12 months, of whom 66% claimed that technology helped them do so.
The most frequently used technologies are social media platforms (53%) and online streaming (25%).
A quarter of 14-year-olds believe artificial intelligence will help them in their future work.
