AARP and SBA Offer Forum for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

LACONIA — AARP and Small Business Administration (SBA) have teamed up to offer an Encore Entrepreneur Forum to teach Granite Staters the first steps in starting their own small business on Thursday, April 25 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Taylor Community's Woodside Building.
Research from the Labor Department finds that one in four Americans between the ages of 44 and 70 are interested in starting their own business or nonprofit venture in the next five to 10 years. And an AARP survey of those 50 and older in New Hampshire shows that work plans at traditional retirement age are changing and only 13% plan to retire and never return to work.
These forums will help potential business owners become confident they have addressed questions of finance, planning and market analysis before investing their time, energy and personal funds in pursuit of their dream of small business ownership.
Register at Events are free but registration is required. Participants do not need to be an AARP member nor over the age of 50. For specific questions, contact Hugh Curley @ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 225-1402.
