The age of entrepreneurs

Paul Kedrosky posted today about a study examining the average age of start-up founders. This study specifically looked at companies with over $1m in revenue and at least 20 employees (i.e. real companies).
People founding tech companies over the last ten years had an average and median age of 39-years, nowhere near the age that makes for good stories about dorm room entrepreneurs -- and older than many of us might have thought.

Good to hear that even at the advanced age of 37, I'm not too old to start, and that I still might have a chance at success.
