On April 8 University of Victoria student Bhupinder Dulku pitches me on his start-up business http://www.travelmetrics.co.
When hearing an investment pitch for a start-up I look for four topcis to be clearly and succinctly answered:
(1) Describe the market pain.
(2) Describe your solution.
(3) Provide your background and any skills you need to drive the business successfully.
(4) Describe how you’re going to make money and the investment opportunity.

With all the mega success stories of young entrepreneurs like Bill Gates of Microsoft, Sergey Brin and Larry Page of Google and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook one can be left to wonder whether it’s too late to become an entrepreneur if you’re not in your twenties.
On today’s monthly CFAX 1070 segment on investing and entrepreneurship we discuss late in life entrepreneurs like Ray Kroc (who bought McDonald’s when he was 52), Harland Sanders (who founded KFC when he was 65) and Robin Chase (who founded Zipcar at 42).
The short answer is, “no”, mid-life is not too late to have a big win!
As always click the following link and fast forward to about 32 minutes.
