What is the best age to become entrepreneur?

 

It’s widely believed that the most successful entrepreneurs are young. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg were in their early twenties when they launched what would become world-changing companies. Do these famous cases reflect a generalizable pattern?

 

In fact, the average age of entrepreneurs at the time they founded their companies is 42.
