    In July, I went to New York with the lads from Webfluential with the aim of
    talking to PR and content agencies about providing the service in the US,
    and speaking to entrepreneurs about their experience in getting their small
    businesses to market there. It was very clear to me that the entrepreneurs,
    or at least the successful ones that had sustained themselves to tell their
    stories, were older than us – mid forties, energetic, engaging men and
    women, unlike the 30 somethings we (generally) have in South Africa. That
    flagged a question that I’ve been pondering since – what is the right age
    to commit to being a full time entrepreneur? The rationale I’ve brought to
    reason suggested that the older, the better. Here’s why.

    For an entrepreneurial venture to be successful, it must add economic value
    to its target audience. It must fend off competitors and attract market
    share to operate sustainably in the world. Traditional industries have long
    operated at scale and kept young minnows at bay due to their competitive
    nature, raising the hurdle for new entrants. If a new operator is to enter
    the market, by implication it has to service a niche or finite gap in a
    wider market. To understand the gaps, how long they’ll remain gaps, and how
    to best exploit them, the entrepreneur should have deep understanding and
    experience in that market. This track record and prior experience in the
    market implies that a better suited entrepreneur for success is an older,
    networked, wiser one.

    The technology industry is an outlying benchmark determining the average
    age of an entrepreneur. The competitive advantage that the youth have over
    older guys is the ability to risk time and be able to code. In the same way
    that Gates, Jobs and Dell, all born at a similar time, outperformed the
    market in computer hardware and software solutions because they could build
    hardware and sell it better than others trying the same at that time. You
    don’t see rising hardware or software entrepreneurs these days, nor will
    you see young Zuckerbergs bringing apps or social platforms to market from
    now on.

    CEOs are entrepreneurial. They back the jockeys in their respective teams
    to grow and sustain their business. Their experience in previous market
    circumstances, in competing companies and skills earned in people
    management and EQ can only come with years of experience. The most trusted
    and most respected CEOs typically come from the more experienced quartile
    of a staff complement.

    Entrepreneurs don’t like risk, although everyone assumes that they do. With
    so much to lose, they have to learn to take incredibly calculated risks,
    with the possibility of returns of such significance that their efforts are
    rewarded. A propensity for risk favours the youth. Calculated risk taking
    favours the old hand.

    Success lies far more in the execution than it does in the great idea
    preceding its execution. A young mind could have the most brilliant ideas
    to bring to bear, but the naivety could be the devil in execution’s detail.

    Mimetic desire is the unconscious tendency to adopt the aspirations of our
    peers, driving us to become aware of the wealth of the few successes of
    entrepreneurs and abandon corporate jobs to follow suit. Since leaving my
    job at RMB at the end of 2013, I am emailed and contacted weekly by young,
    aspirational enthusiastic people wanting to cash in their corporate chips
    and go it alone. They’re drawn to the entrepreneurial challenge for reasons
    I often can’t relate to. Where the takkie hits the tar – it’s more often
    than not, a very treacherous, lonely, terrifying place to be, and certainly
    not for everyone.

    Buffet and Icahn – the hallowed investor grand masters of Wall Street – are
    mankind’s best examples of entrepreneurs. They backed the best jockeys to
    execute the businesses they saw would shine. Why is it that young people
    want to become entrepreneurs without punching their job cards in a few
    companies first? I’m certainly not playing down the benefits of
    entrepreneurial thinking, or trying a out a little sideline e-commerce
    store, for instance, but do think that the early demise of a would-be
    success later in life is something we can afford to avoid.

    In South Africa – Christo Wiese, Michael Jordaan, Jannie Mouton, Johann
    Rupert and Patrice Motsepe are some of the cream of our entrepreneurial
    crop. The common thread between them all? None of them could code.

    But just because you can – doesn’t mean you should become an entrepreneur.
    Just yet, at least. Rather just enjoy this video clip and turn up for work
    tomorrow.
