The road to entrepreneurship and becoming a leader in the business sphere is often one that is not straightforward, yet should begin with a strong educational foundation. When this is lacking, it can prove a hindrance.

Airing his views on the subject on social media, experienced business leader and Founder of Hero Gaming, Georg Westin, writes “one of the biggest problems for young entrepreneurs is that the school system makes it so hard to find out what you want to do with your life.”

Drawing upon his own experience, the entrepreneur, who is also founder and owner of investment company Maxify, recalls how “my school sent me to a supermarket for my work experience — and this was supposed to teach me what career I wanted.”

Calling for a change to the system, Mr Westin believes this lack in guidance when it comes to choosing a career path can play a significant part in leading young people to abandon their studies. “We need to change this, as it is really sad to see how many people drop out of university because their subject isn’t for them,” he maintains.

Proposing how this can be improved upon, the company founder suggests, “we need to get businesspeople into schools early on to speak about their lives, to show young people which path to take.”
