Television and the media generally have raised the profile of entrepreneurs and we imagine them to be young, energetic and creative people. Research shows us that the older you are when setting up a business, the greater its chances of success. Here, Professor Tom Cannon puts things in a global perspective and tells us about the challenges that budding silver entrepreneurs face and what is being done in the north of England to remove those barriers.
