Did you know?
Currently there are over 76 million Baby Boomers in the country and many are interested in and poised to be entrepreneurs. New research found that one in four Americans between the ages 44 and 70 are interested in starting their own 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”, 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. Entrepreneurship training focuses on helping experienced professionals leverage their career knowledge for a new business. This Encore Entrepreneur Event is an opportunity for the SBA and its partners to leverage AARP’s network to introduce existing and future encore entrepreneurs to existing resources. There will be a networking opportunity for participants after the event with small business counselors from our resource partner network to answer any questions about small business assistance through the SBA resource partner network.
The event is free but seating is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, call SBA Colorado District Office at 303-844-2607.
