America's Largest Gathering to Connect, Match and Fund Solopreneurs
with Intergenerational Partners and Investors
Did You Know?
Ever heard of Dropbox? We all have. We probably use it every day. But did you know that before founder Drew Houston was accepted to Y Combinator to fund his project, they asked him to have a business partner? They had to see that more people than just the founder believed in the idea and were ready to put their money where their mouths were.
FACT: 65% of startups fail because of not having the right co-founders
FACT: Teams with 2 or more co-founders outperformed solo founders (solopreneurs) by 163%
Why Intergenerational-teamed Startups?
Research shows that one of the top reasons startups fail is not having the right team. Often, it’s about a lack of diversity in the team.
When we think about diversity, we often think about race and gender. There’s another, often overlooked component of diversity that every startup can use to become more credible, more impactful, and more successful… generational diversity!
Intergenerational startups with co-founder teams foster diversity in backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. These differences yield smarter decisions, better cash management, and more innovation in bringing products and services to market.
There's no other conference where solopreneurs from four generations can:
meet and learn from each other
pitch to attendees and angels
get advice from angel investors on why intergenerational teams are more successful than solopreneurs
