Who is SCORE?
SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals through education and mentorship. We have been doing this for fifty years.
Because our work is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and thanks to our network of 11,000+ volunteers, we are able to deliver our services at no charge or at very low cost.
SCORE has helped over 10 million people start or grow small businesses since 1964. Our volunteer business mentors are located in over 340 chapters across the United States.
