Baby Boomers and Entrepreneurship

I just read an excellent article titled Lure of Entrepreneurship Beckons Boomers, on BusinessWeek.com. The article describes the increasing number of baby boomers who are becoming entrepreneurs. As I have worked on our Speedpitching team, many of the presenters at our events seem to fit into this new category of entrepreneurs. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues in the future.

As a side note, Bill Payne, who serves on FundingUniverse’s advisory board, provides commentary in the article.
