Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has partnered with the SCORE Foundation, America’s premier source of free and confidential small business mentoring and advice, to deliver resources such as custom information and education modules to help small business owners make a smart start. Through its website and social media engagement (#SCOREWithCanon), Canon will work with the SCORE Foundation to promote formation, growth, and success of small business and job creation nationwide through mentoring and educating entrepreneurs.

Small business owners are encouraged to follow the @CanonUSAImaging Twitter handle and the Canon U.S.A.

The SCORE Foundation has over 11,000 volunteer mentors and hosts over 15,000 workshops held nationwide, with a goal to help small businesses get off the ground and on the road to success. To participate in the conversation, small business owners can provide their own tips using the social media hashtag #SCOREWithCanon.
