Interesting post by Professor Noam Wasserman called Don’t Wait Too Long to Become an Entrepreneur in the Harvard Business Online site.
In my research on thousands of founders of high-potential ventures that had succeeded in raising capital from professional investors, 76% of founder-CEOs had worked for 20 years or less before founding their first ventures — they had made the leap by the time they were in their early 40s
Waiting for the “perfect time” to make the jump is usually futile, for there’s no moment that’s truly perfect. So even if you’re early in your corporate career, when a winning new-business idea comes along and sparks an entrepreneurial passion in you, carpe diem.
Mmmm … early 40s, early in my corporate career, new business ideas … Noam are you suggesting something to me?
