We Know the Territory

SCORE Counselors come from virtually every business category you can imagine: marketing... manufacturing... service... retail sales... etc. No matter what your business, you will find someone who can help you.

Confidential Meetings

When we receive your "Request for Counseling" form, a Counselor will call you to schedule a time and place for your first consultation. Even though it is only one hour long, you will leave with a lot to think about. Thereafter, you can call the Counselor for more consultation as the need arises. There is no limit in the number of meetings you can have or in the time period over which you can ask for help.

The SCORE Library: the Library of Success!

We have written 80+ briefs on a variety of business subjects including:

Buying a Business Financial Management Marketing Your Product

Business Seminars

SCORE offers many different seminars programs repetitively throughout the year:

"Starting and Nurturing Your Business" provides a comprehensive overview of what you should know about starting and successfully operating your own business.

"Financial Management and Funding" focuses on the financial aspects of owning a small business, including how to get funds from institutions and how to manage your cash.

"Marketing/Sales Strategies for Small Businesses and How to Effectively Use the Web" deals with how to create a marketing plan, including competition, price, and advertising considerations, as well as using the Internet to improve your earnings.

These seminars and other are conducted by SCORE members, most of whom are retired executives, and they encourage open discussion as they share their expertise and experience. The programs have been praised by those who have attended them, local lenders, and the Small Business Administration.
