Wales could be on the brink of a youth business boom, according to a new report. A study by the Prince's Trust and RBS shows that a quarter of Wales' young people believe they will be self-employed in the future. Around a quarter also said they expect to be their own boss in the next five years.
Twenty-five percent of young people included in the survey also say they are thinking of setting up their own business.
– Lesley Kirkpatrick, director of The Prince's Trust in Wales
"This research reveals an increasingly entrepreneurial mood among young people in Wales. Five years on from the start of the recession, youth unemployment remains high and many are seeing self-employment as a way to break the cycle of joblessness.
"Setting up in business can be tough - but at The Prince's Trust we have a 30-year track record of helping disadvantaged young people succeed in work and self-employment, no matter what their background. It is critical we nurture young people's passion for business and invest in the next generation."

It says that, although progress has been made, there are still issues over: stereotypes, childcare, and the differing amounts that men and women are paid.

Today's report will help us to take stock of the position of women in the Welsh workforce and highlight work that still needs to be done.
It is vital that we challenge stereotypes in subject choice at school and in the workplace and that this should begin at the earliest opportunity.
The costs and quality of childcare are a major concern for many parents who are in the workplace or who wish to work. The Welsh Government is committed to taking action to improve things for ordinary people and I am looking at ways to improve access to affordable childcare.
- Just under 80% of women said being a builder was more suitable for a man and around half said that being a plumber or an electrician was more suitable for a man.
- 78% of employers said lack of childcare affected a woman's ability to work fulltime, while they thought it only affected 48% of men's.
- 60% of employers think that further action by the state would help to achieve equality.
A report by an agency set up to for the economic development of women in Wales has found that while women have made considerable progress in the Welsh workforce over the past 16 years, there is a "mix of barriers" facing them that limit their contribution to the Welsh economy.
Chwarae Teg said the reason why a woman's progress may be hindered is because powerful stereotypes and assumptions about the suitability of certain jobs for different genders "shape women's place in the workforce".
The report, which interviewed 600 women and 400 employers, found that many experience a skills squeeze - they are more highly qualified and more likely to receive in work training than men yet they continue to work in lower skilled jobs and receive lower pay.
It added that affordable and accessible childcare needs to be more available for women who want to balance child care responsibilities and work because at the moment some women feel a lack of childcare hindered their business opportunities.
The agency concluded that for Wales to successfully compete on a global stage the skills and experience of working women needs to be better utilised.
