I have been saying this for quite a while, but Molly Hensley-Clancy from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette does a much better job.

“When they picture the modern American entrepreneur, many people imagine Mark Zuckerberg-types: young, tech-savvy, fresh out of college.

According to a survey by the nonprofit, Kauffman Foundation, Americans ages 55 to 64 start new business ventures at a higher rate than any other age group, including those in their 20s. In 2010, a survey said, “23 percent of new entrepreneurs were aged 55 to 64, up from 14 percent in 1996.”
