Could you be an olderpreneur – more people than ever are setting up businesses post 50

Is it too late to set up your own business? Many people are saying no and setting up new businesses 50+.

In fact, Barclays, the UK’s largest retail bank, says 19,000 people who were 55 or over opened new business accounts last year – also a huge rise on 10 years ago. More people over 65 are going into business than ever. Last year 465,000 told the Office for National Statistics that they were self-employed – that’s more than double the figure a decade ago.

Listen to what Liz Earle, a skincare entrepreneur, says about the new generation of “Olderpreneurs” on BBC’s You and Yours.
