Prospective entrepreneurs 50 and older are invited to National Encore Entrepreneur Mentor Day.

The event, sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration and AARP, will be from 9 to 11 a.m. on Oct. 2 at Wichita State University’s Hughes Metropolitan Complex, 5015 E. 29th Street North.

Mike Relihan, owner of Bullseye Shooting Range; Beth Tully, owner of Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates; and Larry Harmon, owner of Larry Bud’s Sports Bar & Grill, will share their stories and lessons learned.

At the event, those who want to start a business can talk to mentors from SBA’s Small Business Development Center and SCORE chapter.

According to the SBA, one in four people ages 44 to 70 are interested in becoming entrepreneurs and 63 percent of Americans plan to work during retirement.
