Poll Results: The Average Age of Entrepreneurs is 42

Table of Contents

Some say it’s never too late to chase your dreams and start a business, while others say it's never too early to turn your ideas into reality and get started building the company you imagine.

Whether you are 62 or 26, if you have aspirations to become an entrepreneur, rest assured there are plenty of opportunities for you to make that happen.

According to a study by MIT, the average age of startup founders is around 42, and the average age of entrepreneurs who founded high-growth companies is 45.

We were curious if our audience follows this same average age trend. So on September 4, 2018, we asked our Incfile Twitter followers how old they were when they started their business.

We were surprised to see that there was a tie between the option “22-30” years old and “Over 30” years old. Of those age ranges, each received 42 percent of votes. There was another tie between the options “Under 18” and “18-21,” since those age ranges each received 8 percent of votes.
