I am getting close to 30. My job is comfortable and pays well. Not sure if I should quit right away or stall for an Year before quitting and working on my own startup.

I have heard investors are more inclined towards under 30 founders.
Any thoughts?

    Do you have a startup idea? The idea and ability to execute is far more important than your age

    Unless you are on the dreaded H-1B visa, I think you should get into the action and do it. If you are too risk averse then you don't have what it takes to build a business.

    Try to do some market research and see if your idea is even desired in a market before you drop everything to develop a product absolutely no one wants

    Last I checked there was no age restriction on innovation ....good idea...and hard work.
    The investor who turns down good idea because of founder is older is stupid.
