During April, 2014, the U.S. Small Business Administration and AARP are again teaming up to host National Encore Entrpreneur Mentor Month, targeting entrepreneurs over the age of 50. Building on last year’s successful strategic alliance, the two organizations provided nationwide mentoring and training to over 119,000 individuals. Throughout April, SBA district offices, state AARP offices and SBA resource partners will host more than 100 events (workshops, conferences, seminars, etc.) around the country. some of these high-powered events will feature “speed mentoring” where entrepreneurs and mentors share best practices and advice from successful small businesses.
