A caminho de Mongo

Na semana passada o JdN publicava o título "Criam-se empresas em Portugal como não se via há cinco anos" e "Onda de novos negócios "rebenta" em plena crise".
Para este blogue é um sintoma de uma evolução estrutural em curso, em linha com aquilo a que chamo a transição para Mongo onde o auto-emprego vai ter cada vez mais peso.
Hoje, descubro este título "Young jobless fuel growth in UK start-ups":
"Thirty per cent of 1,627 people interviewed by YouGov for the study said they believed they would be self-employed in the future, while one in four said they expected to be their own boss within five years.
If even a small amount of these predictions came true it would be a significant increase on the current situation where only 5 per cent of young people are self-employed."
Mas o fenómeno não é só para novos, como no relato do JdN:
"The Kauffman Foundation, a US-based think-tank dedicated to the study of entrepreneurship, recently calculated that the average age of people starting high-growth companies was 40 and that the fastest growing age band for entrepreneurship in the US was among 55 to 64 year olds."

"My dream—the solution—is that we would have a National Entrepreneur Day, with the following message:

Most of you will fail, disrespected, impoverished, but we are grateful for the risks you are taking and the sacrifices you are making for the sake of the economic growth of the planet and pulling others out of poverty. You are at the source of our antifragility. Our nation thanks you."
