Old and Young Alike?

Old and Young Alike?

Fred has a couple good posts today about the age of entrepreneurs (here, here).  His evidence is that most entrepreneurs are in their late 20s or early 30s — in a very non-judgmental way.

I have a slightly different take on it.  I heard from someone once that entrepreneurs are either late 20s/early 30s or in their 50s or even 60s.  So basically, the young entrepreneurs have nothing to lose because they’re so early in their careers…and the older ones can afford to take risk because they have already made their money elsewhere.

Not sure how much universal truth there is to that, but one thing I’m certain of is that using the Internet as a barometer of this is a mistake!
