Age and Entrepreneurship in France

The Time article about the auto-entrepreneurship program we just talked about also contained some interesting information about age:
So far, two-thirds of that group are men, aged 40 on average. About 33% are salaried employees starting up a sideline business, 25% are unemployed and 6% are retirees.
This shouldn't be surprising given research from the Kauffman foundation and Scott Shane, but it remains a hard pill to swallow for many.
