Discover Senior Entrepreneurship
Engage in discussion with leading experts on aging as they share research from a demographic, business, health, and an entrepreneurial perspective. Lecture Spotlight: Senior Entrepreneurship is not an Oxymoron: The 21st Century is the Age of Experience! Thursday, April 27 | 7-8:30 pm | $10. Students free with an ID, please RSVP to Jill Conrad. Seniors are not rocking chairs – they’re rocking the economy! Today’s 50+ year-olds who have been given the gift of an additional 20–30 years of longevity and good health are keen to add meaningful life to those years, to remain self-reliant, and to give back to their work, communities and their world. Their longevity is an unprecedented social and economic opportunity. There is no blueprint for what to do with an additional 20-30 years. Seniors around the globe are entrepreneuring their way into a new life, optimizing their life and work experience and creating businesses of their own—from micro- to multimillion-dollar ventures. Join us for this lively and engaging discussion!
