As a solopreneur, if you’re tired of losing business because you don’t have the experience, connections or capital… our Summit is for you!
Did You Know?
Airbnb co-founders Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk are millennials but when they needed to take their idea to the next level, Chesky reached out to 52-year-old baby boomer and hotel entrepreneur, Chip Conley. Conley self-admittedly didn’t have the tech savvy of a millennial, but he had industry experience and wisdom that added value to the company.
“We need to learn how to create intergenerational collaboration and sharing of wisdom in both directions … organizations for the future are well-suited to create a generational potluck where each person brings what they know best to the table … and then we all share that.” Chip Conley
65% of startups fail because of not having the right co-founders
Teams with 2 or more co-founders outperformed solo founders (solopreneurs) by 163%
Why Intergenerational 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!
