Resource Title: Don’t Ease into Retirement: Women Age 65 and Over are Finding New Success in Business

Publication Title: CNBC @Work

Publish Date: June 30, 2019

“Key Points

  • Three percent of women ages 65 and up are involved in early stage entrepreneurship, up from 2.3% in 2016, and outpacing business formation among the general population.
  • Only 15.5% of women in the 65-and-over age group are still in the workforce.
  • With roughly 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day, an encore career as a business owner is a way for women to maintain their energy, interest and creativity rather than ease into retirement.”
