This is a group for anyone over 45 hoping to start their own business, change careers or start a social enterprise. We have now been coined 'the seniorpreneurs'. Does the answer to Australia’s economic woes lie in more people earning income until they are 70? If so, then self-employment and middle-aged entrepreneurship maybe the key. As the nature of work changes some Australians will find the best – perhaps only – source of meaningful new employment is to create their next job, rather than applying for it.
