SCORE Empowers All Entrepreneurs

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.
