Michael Mercieca in BusinessZone: Is there a link between age and business success?
Michael Mercieca, chief executive of business and enterprise education charity Young Enterprise, says that if you are going to be an entrepreneur, you will start young.
“When you are young, you don’t have the commitment. There is a higher likelihood that the business may fail, but there is not too much damage – you have that resilience and confidence, as well as the positivity, determination and energy of youth.”
Mercieca adds that, in general, young people also have the advantage of being more tech-savvy than their older counterparts.
“It just comes as second nature to them and it is much easier these days to start a business online, from home.”
