Small Business Resource Center for the 50+
Small businesses are the backbone of America’s economy. That’s why we’ve partnered with AARP to launch the Small Business Resource Center for the 50+, a new, free online resource center filled with important resources for aspiring entrepreneurs and established business owners. Older entrepreneurs can find support, resources, and practical guidance as they start, manage, and grow their business.
A significant majority of small businesses are owned by entrepreneurs who started their businesses later in life. More than half (54%) of America’s small business owners are over 50 and in 2019 they employed almost half (47.3%) of the U.S. private sector workforce.
The Small Business Resource Center for the 50+ includes:
- Guides to starting, managing, and growing small businesses
- Help on operating small businesses during a crisis and determining vulnerabilities
- Assistance in evaluating funding needs and identifying sources of funding for small businesses
Resources in both Spanish and Chinese
