SCORE, the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors, is dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals. Since 1964, we have provided education and mentorship to more than 11 million entrepreneurs.
SCORE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Thanks to this generous support from the SBA and because of the selfless contributions of our more than 10,000 dedicated volunteers, we are able to deliver most of our offerings at no cost.
SCORE provides a wide range of services to established and budding business owners alike, including:
Entrepreneurs can access free, confidential business mentoring in person at more than 250 local chapters or remotely via email, phone and video. SCORE mentors, all experts in entrepreneurship and related fields, meet with their small business clients on an ongoing basis to provide continued advice and support.
Webinars and Courses on Demand
SCORE regularly offers free online workshops on topics ranging from startup strategies to marketing and finance. Attendees can watch webinars live, or view recordings online on their own time. We also offer interactive courses on demand, so you can walk through each module at your own pace.
Library of online resources
Business owners can also benefit from SCORE’s extensive collection of eguides, templates, checklists, blogs, videos, infographics and more. We strive to provide the most relevant and current educational content to help small business owners and entrepreneurs succeed.
Many local SCORE chapters hold free or low-cost in-person workshops and roundtable discussions covering a range of topics.
