Encore Entrepreneur 2021

This event is targeted at entrepreneurs who are seeking their next career, or next business.   "Encore entrepreneurs" will learn from successful business owners and community leaders who provide advice and assistance. With one in four individuals ages 44 to 70 interested in becoming entrepreneurs, and 63 percent of Americans planning to work during retirement, small business ownership is a good option. Nearly half of aspiring entrepreneurs reported a desire to be "Encore Entrepreneurs," starting a business with a positive social impact. If this sounds like you or someone you know, then this online event can help you find fulfillment through your own small business opportunity. Owning your own small business can be an exciting change of pace, as well as a terrific way to stay engaged and productive. Small business owners with long-term counselors see bigger sales, hire more workers and last longer. SCORE, the SBA, Acsendus and Prospera will provide information on the availability of training and mentoring services entrepreneurs can use to successfully start and grow businesses and create jobs. As a workforce veteran, you bring a great deal to the table: maturity, strong finances, and a wide network of professional contacts and associates. Whether you're interested in starting a side business right now or intend to wait, now is the time to explore the possibilities - starting a business, or buying a franchise. Attendees will:

  • Learn about the support and resources available to them locally. 
  • Hear from a successful Encore Entrepreneurs who will share their stories and experience with the audience. 
  • Financing your dream will be discussed. Representatives from micro loan, traditional and non-traditional financial sources will describe those channels and be on hand to discuss specifics. 

Fee: free. Sponsored by Comerica Bank.
