South Dakota SBA and AARP to Host
National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Day
Sioux Falls – The U.S. Small Business Administration and AARP will team up October 2, 2012, to host the first National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Day. The event is targeted at entrepreneurs over the age of 50 to match these “encore entrepreneurs” with resources for advice and assistance.
South Dakota’s event will be hosted by SBA, AARP, SCORE and Active Generations on October 2, at Active Generations, 2300 W. 46th Street, Sioux Falls, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. This event will help connect encore entrepreneurs with mentors from the Small Business Development Center, Women’s Business Center and SCORE who can help throughout the life of an entrepreneur’s business.
WHY: With one in four individuals ages 44 to 70 interested in becoming entrepreneurs, and 63 percent of Americans planning to work during retirement, small business ownership is a good option. Small business owners who work with long-term counselors often see bigger sales, hire more workers and enjoy long term success.
WHO: U.S. Small Business Administration
WHAT: Encore Entrepreneur Fair
WHEN: Tuesday, October 2nd, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
WHERE: Active Generations, 2300 W. 46th Street, Sioux Falls
