Innovation without Age Limits
Venture capitalists in Silicon Valley prefer to fund the young, the next Mark Zuckerberg. Why? The common mantra is that if you are over 35, you are too old to innovate.

Some prominent figures are even urging talented young people to skip college, presumably so they do not waste their "youngness" on studying.
