GoDaddy has released a survey, ‘Future of Work’, which polled 1,200 respondents in India working in small or mid-sized organisations, out of a global pool of 7,023. The survey had a mix of fresh entrants to mid-career professionals and those exiting workforce, with over half of them planning to startup in the coming decade.
And the result –
70% – said they decided to start their own business while they were working, as opposed to the global trend of starting up while still in college or after graduation.
60% – those who planned on starting up over next 10 years.
62% – entrepreneurs who wanted their business to expand beyond India.
67% – said new technologies have led to newer opportunities.
72% – believe online presence was essential for gaining customers.
5% – believe work experience is essential for entrepreneurship.
12% – said education is essential.
