Starting a Business Later in Life - Mature Entrepreneurs Conference

 

Mature entrepreneurs represent the fastest growing sector of entrepreneurship in Australia.  Indeed, Australia recently ranked #3 in the world amongst developed economies for the highest % of mature aged people engaged in early stage entrepreneurship.

 

There are many reasons and many advantages to starting a business later in life. Mature age Australians, including those at risk of unemployment due to structural changes in the economy, face unique issues and opportunities in today's labor market, and self-employment is becoming a more attractive and viable option for older people wishing to be their own boss. 

 

This half day event is especially designed for people aged over 45 and will explore the theme of entrepreneurship and self-employment as an alternative pathway or option to employment.  Be inspired!

 

The keynote address, “Entrepreneur Start-Up Myths Exposed - the Rise of Mature Entrepreneurs in Australia” will be delivered by internationally recognised senior entrepreneurship educator and researcher, Professor Alex Maritz.

 

  • Hear stories from people who have started businesses later in life - why they started and what they've learned.

 

  • Guest speakers will address the importance of financial planning for self-employment, maintaining a positive work-life balance, and overcoming your fears.

 

  • Learn about local support services available. 

 

Refreshments included. MYSTERY DOOR PRIZE.

 

Friday, 4th October. 8:15am to 1:00pm.
