Microfinance as a support to senior entrepreneurship and to the transfer of competences

Publication Papers

In this publication, we address the specific question, "How can microfinance support senior entrepreneurship and the transfer of competences?". While Europe is now in the post-crisis phase attempting to recover from severe economic downturns, governments are increasingly spending less on social schemes, pensions and welfare systems. This research touches upon a fairly new subject regarding the ageing populations in European countries, demographic imbalances, pension reforms and senior unemployment.

The article touches on subjects such as questioning common beliefs, adapting products to their specific needs, or supporting and training in areas where seniors might lag behind, such as new technologies.
