Did you know that a 50 plus year old startup founder is almost 3 times more likely to have a successful business compared to a 25-year-old startup founder? I would have thought that due to positive stats like that there would have been more and more support to grant fundings available to this older entrepreneur group but no, we don't see that.
However, there are great people in our society who see the need for that kind of support for older entrepreneurs and they take action.
One such awesome person is with us here today, Wendy Mayhew. Wendy is an author, educator, and entrepreneur with over 40 years of experience. Her most recent businesses are "WISE - Seniors in Business" and "WISE 50 over 50 Awards.” WISE - Seniors in Business was formed to change how older entrepreneurs are perceived and to guide older entrepreneurs in deciding if entrepreneurship is for them.
Wendy has quickly became Canada's leading expert on older entrepreneurship. She has an extensive research in understanding the challenges. She is a sought after speaker and workshop facilitator of many business organisations. Now, she's starting to realise the importance of serving this newest group of entrepreneurs.
