Summer of Encore Mentoring

SBA and AARP have renewed their strategic partnership to jointly counsel, train, and mentor encore entrepreneurs on small business creation. For many 50+ individuals, entrepreneurship training is the toolkit that empowers them to use their experience, knowledge, and skills to become business owners and job creators. Since the partnership began in 2012, the SBA and AARP have educated more than 300,000 existing and budding potential encore entrepreneurs.

Throughout June, July, and August, SBA district offices, state AARP offices, and SBA resource partners will host various events (workshops, conferences, seminars, etc.) to help entrepreneurs 50+ start or grow a business.

In addition, visit for free online courses and other resources to help you start, grow and succeed.
