A number of countries, most notably Nigeria, are embracing entrepreneurship as of one the ways to facilitate job creation among youth. The movement towards self-employment is, and will continue to become an increasingly important element of economic growth and development. The study`s broad objective was to investigate the factors that could influence youth entrepreneurship in Lagos, Nigeria. Primary data was used and analyzed using inferential statistics. The empirical findings in this study reveal that, among other factors, quality entrepreneurship training, reliable monitoring system, good government policy and affordable interest rate, should be put in place in order to ensure a sustained growth in self-employment. The combination of these factors may result in better results than adopting one factor, for instance, entrepreneurship training alone may not suffice for effective and efficient youth entrepreneurship until it is combined with other factors.
