Senior Enterprise – an initiative designed to encourage a greater involvement with enterprise for people aged 50+
Senior Enterprise was set up in 2010 and ran until 2013. It was an EU initiative supported by INTERREG IVB NWE. It aimed to raise awareness and support seniors over 50 years old in becoming involved with starting, partnering in, investing in and/or acquiring a business. It also aimed to develop a group of senior mentors and advisors for entrepreneurs aged 50+.
This initiative led to over 1000 companies being launched by entrepreneurs aged 50 +, and saw over 300 companies receive support from Senior Mentors. The Senior Entrepreneurship Good Practices Manual describe this initiative as “an example of co-entrepreneurial (bridging the age-gap) synergy”.
