Encore Programs: Entrepreneurship for Business Owners 50yrs+
The Encore Programs are created especially for those seeking a second or lifestyle career at age 50+. Instead of leaving work behind, many are finding that starting a business or scaling their existing business provides an exciting new chapter to their lives. Encore Programs meet bi-weekly on Thursdays and alternates between free discussion sessions ("What's Your Next") and kick-starter sessions that provide a hands-on approach to addressing pertinent business ownership issues ("Encore Career Toolbox").
