|The aim of this contribution is to evaluate the situation among the young people in the field of entrepreneurship. Lot of European countries have the problem of unemployed young people, especially students and graduates. Thus, there is potential for young people to find self-realization in a form of entrepreneurs. It is important to monitor the situation among the young generation – their motivation and expectation as the future entrepreneurs. The research uses the two sources of the data. Primary source is own questionnaire survey conducted among the students of Masaryk university. It is inspired by the survey of Eurostat analysing motivation to become an entrepreneur, financial possibilities, and the expected problems of future entrepreneurs. Secondary data sources are the survey conducted by abovementioned Eurostat. They are used as source for identification of trends and differences among the European countries. Primary data are used to analyse the situation among the students at Masaryk University. Differences arising from secondary data could be connected with the entrepreneurship environment or generally with the economic situation of analysed country. According to primary data of our own survey among students of Masaryk University, there are comparable results with the secondary data for Czech Republic in the motivation, but the different results for financing or expected problems. According to results from analysis of secondary and primary data, there are students – young generation in general – who are motivated to become entrepreneurs. Providing the appropriate support for them can be seen as the part of solution of the problem with unemployment of young people. The comparison of the surveys provides wider overview of the analysed topic and own survey identifies opportunity to support students of the Masaryk University specifically.
