I have over 14 years’ experience with SCORE in mentoring Startups. I specialize in how to write a business plan, a subject I taught as an Adjunct Professor at the Graduate level.  I also worked on the final development of the business plan templates that are featured on the SCORE website and also available in the Microsoft Office Template gallery.  I can provide expert assistance in the use of these great tools.

In my years with SCORE I have mentored hundreds of clients in their startup efforts and helped many write their business plan to secure financing.

My career includes 35 years in the Insurance Industry and I hold the professional designation “Accredited Advisor in Insurance”. Concurrent with that, for over 20 years I was a part owner of a very successful small business employing over 20 workers so I can relate to the challenges that a typical small business owner is facing.   

I have served on the Board of Directors of two IT companies and a large marketing company. My education includes degrees in accounting and marketing, an MBA and an Associate in Information Technology. For fun I support the information technology for 4 nonprofits and a private school in my area and serve as webmaster for six websites.

Frank Charles Millheim

Current City: Newtown Square, PA

Expert in Government Contracting and knowledgeable in how to start up a business.

 I am an award-winning manager of responses to Federal and State government Request for Proposals (RFP). I developed a repeatable process for producing proposals based on best practices and lessons learned. My deep understanding of RFPs is enhanced by my experience consulting with government agencies as they developed their RFPs and evaluated proposals from other contractors. I know what is necessary for a small business to register with the government, get set-aside certifications (e.g. 8a, woman owned business), how to communicate your business's capabilities, identify contract opportunities, know your competition and develop a winning proposal.

In my years of small business mentoring, I have counseled new businesses from when they were a startup to when they became a documented SCORE Success Story.  I have experience in how a business can use SCORE resources to aid in a start-up environment.
