Lessons From & For Older Entrepreneurs

Monday, October 29 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm • Organized By Aging2.0 Kansas City Chapter
8880 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, MO 64114


Join Aging2.0 Kansas City and Think Big Partners

As we delve into the phenomena that older entrepreneurs succeed at a higher rate than younger founders.

According to a recent paper from researchers at MIT, Northwestern and the Census Bureau, “The highest success rates in entrepreneurship come from founders in middle age and beyond.”

  • Why is this the case?
  • What advantages do older entrepreneurs have?
  • What particular challenges do they face?
  • What lessons can founders of all ages learn from older entrepreneurs?

Hear from older entrepreneurs including:

  • Paul Tasner, CEO and co-founder of PulpWorks, Inc, who founded PulpWorks at the age of 66. Paul’s TED Talk, Becoming an Entrepreneur at 66, was recently named one of the top 5 TED Talks that will change your perspective about aging.
  • Don Peterson, founder and former CEO of Infusion Express, a medical services provider that offers IV drug therapy to patients with chronic conditions requiring regular treatment.

Gain key insights during a panel moderated by Herb Sih, managing partner and co-founder of Think Big Partners.
