Coffee & Conversation: Encore Entrepreneurship – A Deeper Dive

October 3, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

The Kauffman Foundation estimates that one in five new entrepreneurs are between 55 to 64 years old. However, older founders receive significantly less venture funding and they are underrepresented in startup incubators and education programs. At the same time, many older founders are not aware of entrepreneurship programs and services offered by Encore Network members and other organizations that serve older adults.  

Members of The Encore Network have expressed interest in programming and services for older entrepreneurs. In response, we are holding a members-only conversation on Tuesday, October 3, to share information, discuss the challenges facing older entrepreneurs, and explore opportunities for collaboration and enhanced support.

Our agenda will be to:

  • Learn about each other’s programs and experiences (or plans) in encore entrepreneurship;
  • Consider our common interests and ways we can support each other, and;
  • Explore interest in continuing to meet periodically, including interest in establishing an Encore Entrepreneurship Affinity Group.

Please join us on Tuesday, October 3 from 12:00 pm -1:00 pm ET/9:00 am -10:00 am PT, to learn, share, connect, and become inspired.
