PLYMOUTH — Encore Entrepreneur Forum sponsored by AARP New Hampshire, Small Business Administration, SCORE, or Center for Women's Business Advancement Tuesday, April 22 5:30-7 p.m. Enterprise Center at Plymouth.
Labor Department research 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. During an AARP New Hampshire survey of people 50 and older it showed that work plans at traditional retirement age are changing, and only 13 percent plan to retire and never return to work. This is why AARP and Small Business Administration have teamed up to offer an encore entrepreneur forum to teach Granite Staters the first steps in starting their own small business. A panel of experts will discuss the elements of making a small business dream become a reality and share a variety of free business services available in the state.
About 63 percent of Americans plan to work during retirement and 12 percent of AARP members are interested in starting their own business. This forum 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.
