This question often comes up in the world of start-ups and entrepreneurs, but rarely has one answer. Growing support may be being made available, but what about the millions of people who don’t even consider entrepreneurship a possibility for them?

“The biggest barrier to entrepreneurship is the term itself”


In this case the question is the problem, not the solution.

The biggest barrier to entrepreneurship is the term itself. To many, ‘entrepreneurs’ seem to be a part of an exclusive club, but anyone who knows or works with them will realise that this isn’t the case.

Entrepreneurship is about building connections: between problems and solutions, ideas and realities, businesses and consumers. It is not about setting boundaries, it’s about breaking them.

At YENA we’re asking how we can engage more people in entrepreneurship rather than arguing over whether it can be taught.

Ultimately, changing the mindset surrounding it will be the key driver in making it more accessible. And that’s something that we’re dedicated to achieving.
