The Manasota Chapter of SCORE covers Sarasota and Manatee counties on the west coast of Florida. We have over 75 volunteers to assist you with your business problem-solving. We offer Education and Mentoring on a wide range of business issues. We are committed to achieving inclusion and diversity among our volunteers, staff, and Board to better serve our clients.
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.
