Starting Up after 50. CELCEE Digest.
Seymour, Nicole
Researchers are finding that older entrepreneurs are an increasing population in many Western countries. It is important to distinguish between entrepreneurs who have simply reached the age of 50 versus those who start up businesses after this age. The latter group is of particular interest because these people have presumably never faced the trials of entrepreneurship before and are. therefore, in a more challenging and unique position. This digest discusses the characteristics of older entrepreneurs and considers the benefits and challenges for older entrepreneurs. (BT)
