Identify the key plans every nonprofit should have
We provide free and confidential one-on-one business counseling by phone, email, and in-person in Columbus OH. We also conduct workshops for both start-up entrepreneurs and seasoned small business owners.
We believe that anyone can start and manage a successful small business. We also know that the road is harder for some than for others. Diverse backgrounds, different voices and unique needs may call for specialized resources and mentoring approaches.
SCORE is listening, recognizes these diverse needs, and provides personalized support in a wholly-inclusive platform called SCORE for All.
Since 1964, SCORE has educated and mentored more than 11 million small business owners and entrepreneurs. We're looking for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to serve in a variety of roles — from knowledgeable business mentors to local community advocates.
Make marketing a planned investment, during these challenging times. Developing a marketing plan is vital for any business. Without one, your efforts to attract customers are likely to be haphazard and inefficient.
