Why Older Entrepreneurs Are a Better Bet

I must say that this is a great, quick article by Nathaniel Cahners Hindman in the Huffington Post, Why Older Entrepreneurs Are a Better Bet, confirming that experience matters to entrepreneurship too. Great way to bust up some stereotypes.

Best stat: the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) shows that entrepreneurs over the age of 35 accounted for 80 percent of “total entrepreneurial activity” in 2009, meaning the planning, setting up, and managing of new businesses. Entrepreneurs under 35, on the other hand, were responsible for only 19.1 percent of entrepreneurial activity, the research finds.

Ha ha…. nice.
