Calling all current business owners and "wantrapreneurs". In support of Work Reimagined, the Small Business Administration (SBA) and AARP will host a continental breakfast event for National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Day on October 2nd to link entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs with community resources to help solve their most critical business needs. Identify your most pressing need, whether it be money, business planning, customer attraction and conversion, business startup, etc., and discover who and what is available to assist you in pushing that rock uphill. Actionable information is available whether you are stumped over a current situation your business is facing, or whether you want to start the process of business formation.
One in four Americans between the ages 44 and 70 is interested in starting a business or nonprofit venture in the next five to 10 years. Nearly half of these aspiring entrepreneurs reported a desire to be “Encore Entrepreneurs,” starting a business with a positive social impact.
For many Baby Boomers, entrepreneurship training is the toolkit that empowers them to use their experience, knowledge, and skills to become job creators. Working with SBA, National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Day is an opportunity to leverage AARP’s network to introduce existing and future Encore Entrepreneurs to resources that will help them start and grow a business.
