4GenNow connects Millennial, Gen X, Baby Boomer and Gen Z entrepreneurs looking to create successful intergenerational startups.


 

Angel investors prefer to invest in startups with 2 or more co-founders with complementary skills and experiences.  The Problem is that most investors shy away from older entrepreneurs who are at the end of their careers... as well as younger, less experienced business owners.  There simply is NO PLATFORM that matches younger and seasoned entrepreneurs - from 4 Generations - to meet, get to know, then launch intergenerational startups.  Until now...

Find your success.

Why 4GenNow? 

 

 

When starting a company find a partner twice or half your age!

Researchers at Duke and Harvard Universities looked at startups earning at least $1 million and discovered that:

  • Founders’ median age was 39
  • Twice as many were older than 60 as were younger than 20.

Research by the Kauffman Foundation found that:

  • In every year from 1996 to 2013, Americans in the 55-64 age group started new business at a higher rate than those in their 20s and 30s.

In an analysis of billion-dollar startups reported by TechCrunch:

  • Average founder on the unicorn list was 34
  • Founders of LinkedIn, the second most valuable unicorn in their study averaged 36
  • Founders of the third most valuable, Workday, averaged 52.

 

    We need to connect generational entrepreneurs.

    America is suffering from an "entrepreneurial deficit"

    Census Bureau data reported from the Kauffman Foundation and Brookings Institute state the number of new companies as a percentage of US businesses dropped 44% from 1978 to 2015.

    "There are few mechanisms in place to facilitate a 'matching' process - to get the younger, inexperienced generations to meet and know the older, experienced generations."
    - Global Institute for Experienced Entrepreneurs

     

    The "X" Factor: An Intergenerational Team

    Having an intergenerational team that fosters diversity in backgrounds, experiences and perspectives yields many advantages:

    • Diversity of know-how
    • Funding availability
    • Uncovering market niches and anticipating costly pitfalls
    • Wider pool of needed tech skills
