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.
When starting a company...
It's easy to get tunnel vision when it comes to finding a co-founder and team members. How many game-changing ideas never make it to the seed development stage because we're not leveraging a variety of perspectives?
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
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
europe is facing unemployment Issues
Eurostat reported that more than 6.6 million people aged 15-24 were neither employed nor in education in the European Union in 2016. Generations aged 50+ are also facing major employment challenges.
Therefore, introducing intergenerational entrepreneurship between the youth and 50+ “second career” individuals via matching and advising would fuel job growth in both the US and Europe.
