According to a study done by Millennial Branding and Internships.com, 72% of high school students want to start their own business someday. 61% percent expect to start a business right out of college.

Is it nurture or nature? The jury is still out about whether entrepreneurs are born or learn to master certain skills needed along the way through experience. But there's a growing trend of hybrids called intrapreneurs. These are people who take on entrepreneurial roles within their companies but don't leave.
Intrapreneurship is characterized by the "start up" style of management, characterized by flexibility, innovation, and risk-taking. The objective is to circumvent bureaucracy and fast-track private sector development by harnessing or taking advantage of new opportunities and new processes or designs.
