What our clients have to say about us!
I’m taking this opportunity to give a big shout-out of appreciation to our local SCORE chapter #027 here in Columbus Ohio. I developed a children’s product, and since 2012 I have attended SCORE workshops and utilized the mentoring program with great satisfaction. The staff at our local chapter has always been very personable, professional, and accommodating. There are many facets to bringing a product to market so I have met with numerous mentors over the years, each one providing great counsel with regards to their specialty. Over the past couple of years I have been working exclusively with Jerry Jones. Jerry has been a great mentor to me with a lifetime of experience, in my industry, to share. He shares his knowledge with the passion and clarity of someone who truly does care about my success. I sleep better knowing he’s on my side.
Navigating the unknowns of entrepreneurship can be challenging to say the least! The folks at SCORE, Chapter #027, continue to play a big role in helping to navigate the mysteries in my ongoing journey towards success. Thank You SCORE! "

The Columbus Chapter of SCORE has been invaluable in helping me figure out how to grow our small non-profit business. Staff are consistently kind and courteous; from the first moment I reached out to SCORE, they seemed to go out of their way to work with me. Our assigned mentor, Mike Hadra, is knowledgeable and great at explaining business concepts. Not only does he answer our questions, he’ll also occasionally check-in just to see how we’re doing and if we’re making progress. There are a lot of great resources for social enterprise in Columbus, but SCORE is definitely at the top of the list!

Working with SCORE has been the single-most beneficial activity I have done for my business. The knowledge and insight I received from David Gobey (my score advisor) has been invaluable to my business and I can’t thank him and the SCORE team enough. SCORE helped me stay focused on thinking through the core issues with my marketing challenges and helped me determine where my efforts would be better spent. My very first interaction with SCORE has ultimately led to the generation of 10’s of thousands of dollars. I very much appreciate the expertise SCORE contributes to my business and I look forward to working with them for the foreseeable future."

I have been working with SCORE for the past 3-4 years. Each individual I have worked with has contributed valuable information and insight into making my company the success that it is today. Due to their input, experience, knowledge, and creativity, they give me great ideas on how to improve my business. As well, I am so grateful that they are easily accessible and willing to help. They are also very quick at responding. I am currently working with Karen Durand on the marketing aspect of my business. She is so insightful, knowledgeable and creative in ideas for my business. She thinks of things I would not have thought of myself. Karen makes herself easily available anytime I need her. Evenwhen she is on vacation she makes sure I know she is accessible. That shows me she is passionate about what she does. Karen is very encouraging, uplifting and supportive. She builds my confidence and lets me know "I can do this"! She is the greatest." Thank you Karen and SCORE for making me the success that I am today. KUDOS!"

I had heard some great things about SCORE Columbus so I attended a free informational session a few years back to see what they had to offer. The information provided was outstanding and I was excited to set up an individual session with a private mentor.
My mentor, Mike Hadra and the team at SCORE Columbus were absolutely fantastic, he provided all the guidance I needed to start and run my Interior Design business successfully. We set up meetings that worked within my schedule and he is always availble by phone, by email or face to face for any question that I have had along the way.
I have really enjoyed working with SCORE Columbus and am now reaping the benefits of the amazing relationship."
