Funding Basics - Entrepreneurs and Investors Perspective
Learn about the funding processes from "funded" founders and investors.
in 2016, the Kauffman Foundation (a Kansas City based nonprofit that studies entrepreneurship in America) reported that the age group of people between 55-64 starting new ventures was higher than any other group that they have monitored in the last 20 years, including people aged 20-34.
The share of new entrepreneurs among this 55-64 age group increased to 25% of the total in 2016 compared to less than 15% in 1996.
in 2014, the Kauffman Foundation reported that only 36.8% of companies were owned by women. According to the UN, 6 out of 10 women born during 2000-2005 are expected to live to 80. MIT Agelab Founder Joseph Coughlin predicts more women will create startups to support the needs of the aging population.
Americans over 45 are more likely to become entrepreneurs than those under 45.
