Start Them Up and They'll Never Stop
The Small Business Administration is aiming to help a rapidly expanding group of entrepreneurs - the Baby Boomers.
The agency today unveiled a Web site designed for the 50-plus entrepreneur that offers information on starting, growing and expanding a small business.
"The SBA is working hard to increase opportunities for small businesses of the baby boomer generation at every stage of their business development through better technology tools and effective services through the agency's district offices and resource partners," said SBA Acting Administrator Sandy Baruah in a statement. "We believe 50-plus entrepreneurs will drive significant new business growth in the coming years."
The new site includes a tool to help potential entrepreneurs measure their business readiness, provides information on borrowing and credit and shares success stories from other Baby Boomer small business owners. It also has been designed to help users evaluate the pros and cons of business ownership after age 50 and advises them on how to treat different phases of business growth.
This is the first offering from the revamped Office of Entrepreneurship Education, which combines SBA's online education programs, business and community initiatives and outreach to underserved markets.
