Young adults in the UK are less likely to start their own business than others around the world, a survey seen by Newsbeat claims.
The poll by O2's parent company Telefonica asked 6,700 people aged 18-30 about their career aspirations.
It suggests a fifth of those in the UK wanted to set up their own business compared to nearly a third in Latin America.
Of those surveyed, 13% said computer science was an important subject.
But there are some who are bucking the trend and becoming their own boss.
This weekend teenagers who've started their own companies will be trying to inspire others to do the same at TEDxTeen.
The event is being held outside the US for the first time and Newsbeat met some of the key speakers to find out the secrets to their success.
