Mentor Month is part of a larger effort by SBA and AARP to promote entrepreneurship among individuals ages 50 and older. It will consist of events across the country that will match encore entrepreneurs with mentors who have small business experience. The events also will help connect encore entrepreneurs with mentors from SBA’s network of Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), this site Women’s Business Centers (WBCs), and SCORE chapters who can help throughout the life of an entrepreneur’s business.
