In this The Faces of Entrepreneurs are Changing webinar Wendy Mayhew – Founder of Business Launch Solutions, WISE – Seniors in Business and the WISE 50 over 50 Awards - will take you through why this is happening, what older entrepreneurs have to offer, the challenges we face, what we can do to make the transition into entrepreneurship easier and what we still need to know about this fast changing landscape.

With the world focused on young and innovative companies, there is little or no attention given to the newest and fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs – people over the age of 50 - who are as creative as our younger counterparts. There are many reasons why this is happening. For example, many have retired but are not ready to stop working or always wanted to be a business owner. Another reason may be that many people haven’t saved enough to retire.

It is fair to say that due to our years of experience, and a Rolodex full of contacts we can reach out to that we have a headstart on being a business owner. Yet older entrepreneurs are not receiving the same support, programs or financing options that young entrepreneurs receive. Change is needed.
