The disruption of the status quo in the business and entrepreneurial world presents loads of benefits to the current millennials. According to Sawyer Howitt, it opens the young minds up to the numerous million dollar opportunities that they can tap into. Such awareness also makes starting and running a successful business much easier than it was less than two decades ago.
Sawyer Howitt argues that the new technological advancements help young minds expand their brainstorming networks that in turn expose them to new business ideas. For instance, he mentions that young entrepreneurs now appreciate that some must-haves on the traditional startup list aren’t entirely necessary for the modern day entrepreneur.
For instance, they have come to understand that they don’t need a big office as one can start their businesses in a shared workspace or even at home. The fact that it is also possible to hire inexpensive virtual assistants over the internet for different roles in your start up further brings down the initial investment capital needed. Minimal start-up capital means reduced risk for investors thereby encouraging them to invest more start-ups.

Millennials going for self-employment
To prove the efficiency this new entrepreneurial system, Sawyer points to statistics from the U.S Chamber of Commerce in 2011 showing that individuals born between 1980 and 2000 open close to 160,000 enterprises every month. This implies that more than 27% of millennials are currently self-employed. Sawyer is also optimistic that these numbers will rise as more young minds gain confidence from watching and following in the entrepreneurial footsteps of their successful age mates.
