SBA and AARP will host Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Month during April to train and counsel 50+ entrepreneurs. Building on the success of a joint SBA and AARP Mentor Day in October 2012, the two organizations will match these “encore entrepreneurs” with successful business owners and community leaders for advice and assistance.

For many 50+ individuals, entrepreneurship training is the toolkit that empowers them to use their experience, knowledge, and skills to become job creators. In addition, entrepreneurship training focuses on helping experienced professionals leverage their career knowledge for a new business. Mentor Month is an opportunity for SBA and its partners to leverage AARP’s network to introduce existing and future encore entrepreneurs to existing resources.
