4.3 The age of entrepreneurs

As can be seen from Figures 5 and 6 which are plotted in the same manner as Figure 1, the age of most entrepreneurs is in the range of 30 to 40 years in both the Bangkok and Phetchaburi surveys, with a few in the range of 40 to 50. It was found that very few entrepreneurs are below 30 years of age. This may suggests that Thai entrepreneurs typically start their business after reaching 30 years of age.
