National Encore Entrepreneur Day is part of a national effort by SBDCs, SBA and AARP to promote entrepreneurship among individuals ages 50 and older.  With many individuals over the age of 50 interested in becoming entrepreneurs and 63 percent of Americans planning to work during retirement, small business ownership is a good option.  Small business owners who use SBDC consultants see bigger sales, hire more workers and stay in business longer.  SBDCs will provide the management consulting and education services older entrepreneurs need to successfully start and grow businesses and create jobs through their partnership with SBA and AARP.
