Why startups shouldn't just be for the young

April 8, 2012View for printing

Startups are for the young and hungry. You're thirty? You're too old. If you haven't made your first million by 25, you've missed your chance. If you're not working 130 hours a week, you'll never create the next Google.

One of the key myths of startups, especially in Silicon Valley, is that they are for the young. Larry Page and Sergey Brin dropped out of Stanford in their 20s to start Google. Steve Jobs started Apple from his parents' garage after he dropped out of college. Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook at university and is now a multibillionaire at 27 years old.
