Now in its fourth year of helping Massachusetts residents 50+ realize their entrepreneurial dreams, Encore Entrepreneur, the AARP outreach program with the Small Business Administration (SBA), is better than ever.
AARP Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Small Business Administration District Office, and SCORE Worcester are coming to Western Massachusetts with an event specifically designed to help “encore entrepreneurs”— those aged 50+— who want to launch or expand a small business. This time, the Encore Entrepreneur Seminar will be held in the evening, thereby allowing even more entrepreneurs to attend.
