Are You a (Business) Founder over 55?

Founders over 55 Graphic

Older entrepreneurs make up a significant percentage of successful new businesses. If you’re 55+ business founder, you’re cordially invited to a Meetup hosted by AGENCY’s Founders over 55 Club. The event is free and will be taking place on Thursday, October 10 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. The location will be the Venture Cafe Cambridge, One Broadway in Cambridge, MA.

RSVP via Eventbrite here.

The Founders Over 55 Club is a collegial community of startups and companies run by founders in their encore careers. We are a member-led organization to celebrate and educate each other along our professional and personal journeys to start and build thriving businesses over the age of 55.

Join us at VentureCafe to share ideas, raise issues, and connect with peers who are puzzling over key questions like:

What motivates founders over 55? . . . is it all about the money? the life-purpose? the intellectual, creative and social engagement? mentoring the next generation(s)?

What drives the success of our ventures? . . . is it lifelong experience and wisdom? renewed curiosity? blending the old with the new?

What resources are most valuable/needed? . . . access to capital, markets, and partners? alternative sources of funding for founders who don’t fit the typical VC profile?

What are the practical challenges and best-practices? . . . balancing a healthy lifestyle with the demands of running a successful business in today’s hyper-competitive climate? visibility in the ecosystem – without an ageism bias ??

We’ll start with a Fireside Chat hosted by Danielle D. Duplin, co-founder AGENCY, with Rob Kornblum, startup adviser and author of “Never Too Late to Startup: How Mid-Life Entrepreneurs Create Wealth, Freedom & Purpose” . . followed by breakouts so you can meet each other and add your voice to the conversation.

Come early (5pm) to enjoy beer & networking with the innovation community at VentureCafe!
