Launching a startup after 40

You are in your forties, or maybe fifties, with a long professional career behind you, but your path may not have brought you to where you expected to be at this age. As is the case for many people, you might be getting bored, or it has been years since your last wage increase, or what retirement has in store for you is not enough. Perhaps, despite having worked hard for years, you don’t know how to pay for college for your children. Now is the right time to consider a change and think about creating your own start-up.
