We match and advise four generations of entrepreneurs: Millennial, Baby Boomer, Gen X and Gen Z on how to found and build intergenerational startups. By connecting 4 generations of entrepreneurs, we intend to unleash an Entrepreneurial Renaissance to fuel economic growth in both urban and rural areas throughout the US and Europe.
Starting a company with intergenerational co-founders yields many benefits including: diversity of know-how, funding availability, uncovering market niches, anticipating costly pitfalls, and tapping into a larger pool of technological skills.
The 4GenNow Connection Studies have shown that angel investors prefer to invest in startups with 2 or more co-founders with complementary skills and experiences.
The PROBLEM is that most investors shy away from older entrepreneurs at the end of their careers ... as well as younger, less experienced business owners who lack the proper background.
There simply is NO PLATFORM that matches younger and seasoned entrepreneurs from 4 generations, to meet-get to know-then launch intergenerational startups...Until NOW.
We’re 1230+ Gen Z, Millennial, Gen X & Baby Boomer entrepreneurs in 35 states and 23 countries.
We offer training: How to find your intergenerational business partner, how to create an elevator pitch, and how to construct a compelling Lean Canvas for investors.
Power Partner Summits Throughout the US and Europe link you to our 4GenNow community members with in-person networking, in-depth roundtable discussions and actionable presentations from successful intergenerational startups. Post Summit advisory services include: How to find your intergenerational business partner, how to create an elevator pitch, and how to construct a compelling Lean Canvas for investors.
