Series Is Part of Joint SBA, AARP “Summer of Encore Mentoring” Initiative Promoting Entrepreneurship Among Older Americans

The SBA South Carolina District Office and AARP South Carolina are holding a free, four-part webinar series focused on starting, managing, financing and marketing a small business. The webinars–scheduled for July 23, July 30, August 6 and August 20–are part of a nationwide joint SBA and AARP “Summer of Encore Mentoring” initiative to promote entrepreneurship among older Americans.

Older entrepreneurs “more often have the experience and wisdom to reach for their dreams of running a small business, and we want to help them reach that dream and change the world,” SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet said.

Although part of an initiative targeted to older entrepreneurs, the webinars are open to all ages. All of the webinars will be live and interactive. Pre-registration is required for each webinar.
