The goal of the paper is to study the entrepreneurial intentions and activities of schoolchildren in Nizhny Novgorod, to identify their needs in developing entrepreneurial skills. The questionnaire is based on the questions of the international research questionnaire GUESSS. For measuring entrepreneurial intentions we used the test of Bass that assesses focus of a person on a task, on communication or on oneself. The questionnaire was distributed to schoolchildren from different schools and districts of the city. On the whole 330 respondents participated in our survey. The results showed that 51% of the schoolchildren think about the career of entrepreneur. The positive attitude towards entrepreneurial activity was identified. Schoolchildren need for in-depth mastering of various skills, obtaining more information about entrepreneurship. Unfortunately, schools rarely provide an opportunity for their schoolchildren to receive knowledge about business environment, to carry out any project activities in order to develop their entrepreneurial ideas.
