ACCA study finds most Brits have entrepreneurial spirit

Most Britons would like to be their own boss, according to new research.

A study carried out by The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has found that 60% of Britons would like to be their own boss, with three-quarters of 25-34 year olds hoping to one day run their own companies.

Glenn Collins, head of business advisory services for ACCA, said: “It is hugely encouraging that so many respondents – especially so many young people – aspire to be their own boss.

“This entrepreneurial attitude bodes extremely well for the next generation of business leaders.”

While 21% of respondents dreamed of owning a shop, other potential businesses mentioned included male escort agencies and professional cycling teams.
