What is the Maturity Age of Companies?

Individual organisms of the same species mature at different ages. The age at which an individual organism matures, reaches reproductive age, depends on many factors some of which are genetic in addition to availability of resources such as food.

Similarly, in the business world, companies can 'mature' at different ages. Some companies may take 10 years to reach the stage of maturity where it can confidently start spinning off franchises or opening up branches or going multinational. For other companies this period might be greatly reduced. One factor determining the maturity age of a company can, similar to living organisms, be the availability of resources for such company.
