Megatrend: The Over-fifty Entrepreneur


What do you get when you combine the multiple trends of a large aging population, increasing individual empowerment through technology, and economic forecasts anticipating that many older adults will work well into their later years? You get the megatrend of adults starting and running their own businesses later in life. Once considered the territory of the young, entrepreneurship is now for anybody, especially older adults with a lifetime of skills to take advantage of. Irvine Builds Businesses Host Robert Coleman will cover this megatrend and explore the implications for the business community both young and old. You will discover:


  • Why ALL businesses should pay attention to the over-fifty entrepreneur
  • The economic and social impacts of an older workforce
  • The rules, risks, and opportunities for older adults who start their own businesses


Robert Coleman has been a small business consultant for well over 25 years, which comfortably places him in the position of both being an over-fifty entrepreneur himself and understanding the risks/rewards of entrepreneurship later in life.
