SCORE, Grand Strand & Pee Dee Chapter, receives over 60 requests for mentoring every month. There are many great business ideas coming across our desks and computer screens every day. And we LOVE it!
Last year we helped to start 50 new businesses, create 105 jobs, and provide 1,150 services (including workshops). And that was done amid pandemic chaos! 74% of our clients confirmed that we helped them with their business and 61% of ‘in business’ clients reported an increase in revenue.
If you are thinking about starting a new business for the first time – go to our website https://grandstrand.score.org and browse it thoroughly. You may find answers to a lot of your questions right there. Or you can listen to a pre-recorded webinar about a business plan https://www.score.org/event/your-roadmap-success-how-create-business-plan. This interaction is also very informative and provides you with initial directions.
If you have already registered your venture but need assistance with the next steps, please go ahead and request a chat with a SCORE mentor on our website. What helps us to find the best match of mentor expertise for you is the information that you provide in your request for mentoring. The more details you provide us with, the better we can serve you.
For clients with established businesses who are looking for ways to boost revenue or address significant challenges unique to their business, we have several options. The most popular one is the program GS360 which offers mentoring by a group of experts. They will work with you to redesign your business strategy and redefine your tactics, set simple and measurable goals, and connect you with a network of supporting organizations for sustainable results.
Importantly, we publish clients’ success stories digitally and in local newspapers as a complimentary marketing promotion. With SCORE our clients’ success truly shines!
