Alaska SBA and AARP to Host National Encore
Entrepreneur Mentor Day
Anchorage – 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.
Alaska’s event will be hosted by SBA and AARP on October 2, at SBA Offices, 420 L Street, Anchorage, from 1:00 to 3:00 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 provides a good option. Small business owners who work with long-term counselors often see bigger sales, hire more workers and enjoy long term success.
