The Entrepreneurial Generations

If we have any hopes of entrepreneurs leading us into a new period of economic growth the evidence is that they will come from two generational groups — the Millennial Generation and their parents the Baby Boomers.

A lot has been written about the potential entrepreneurial contribution of the Millennial Generation.

Jeff Wuorio examines the boom in boomer entrepreneurs in a post at Business on Main:


“They may share many attributes with their younger colleagues, but the
challenges and opportunities faced by older entrepreneurs are decidedly
different, and it’s critical they know what those differences are and
how to approach them.”

My only critique is that Wuorio kept referring to the boomer entrepreneurs as “older” entrepreneurs.  As a proud member of this generation, I can assure you that while we may be older chronologically, we are still very young at heart!!
