Small business ownersHave you ever given thought to starting your own business? Here’s your chance to further explore your idea.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and AARP are teaming up in April and May to host Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Days in Fargo, Grand Forks, Bismarck and Minot. The two-hour workshops are targeted at people over the age of 50 to match these “encore entrepreneurs” with successful business owners and community leaders for advice and assistance.

These free events run from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and include lunch. For the first hour, you’ll hear from experts and learn about programs and resources available through SBA, AARP and a network of resource organizations. During the second hour, you’ll have the opportunity for one-on-one discussion and counseling with a representative from the SBA or Service Core of Retired Executives.

Space is limited. Please pre-register so we have an accurate count for lunch. Register by calling toll-free 877-926-8300 or register online below…and explore your Real Possibilities!
