Nancy Mahoney and Mark Snyder had an idea. It was just a question of how to make it happen. They knew they wanted to start their own railroad business. They had experience, having each worked for a large railroad company. And they had skin in the game, putting up about $50,000 of their own cash to get the venture started. Still, they thought they might need a loan to get things off the ground.
In the summer of 2010, they stumbled upon SCORE. After visiting the SCORE office at the High Point Chamber of Commerce, the business partners were well on their way.
