Solopreneurs abound, but a recent global survey suggests a majority of potential entrepreneurs would rather hire people than work alone.
Fifty-seven percent of people surveyed for the 2018 Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report indicated they’d prefer to hire others.
The statistic emerged from a broad survey conducted by market research firm GfK SE, which found overall that entrepreneurial “spirit,” as measured by desire, feasibility and stability, or commitment to starting a business, remains healthy around the world, albeit a bit lower than in 2017.
The survey of nearly 50,000 people ages 14 to 99 also reveals noteworthy differences based on gender, age and geography.
The report indicates, for example, that women may be more hesitant than men to start a business, and that people younger than 35 possess the strongest desire to become entrepreneurs.
In the U.S., for example, 67 percent of men signaled a desire to start a business, compared with 47 percent of women.
Globally, while women were almost on par with men in indicating support from family and friends for their entrepreneurial goals, significant differences emerged in other areas.
