Entrepreneur Magazine recently posted an article predicting that Generation “Z”—those born between 1994 and 2010—will be the most ambitious and entrepreneurial generation yet. Why? Let me break down the facts for you:

  • Gen ‘Z’ aka “The Internet Generation,” was raised with the Internet and endless online information at their fingertips. Literally!

  • Parents are increasingly encouraging their children to gain knowledge and experience outside of school. However, Entrepreneur says that while the parents are involved in their children’s scholastic activities, they are hands off when pushing them toward the professional world, making their kids more independent.
