About Us

For over 50 years, SCORE has been a premier source of free small business advice for start-ups and existing businesses in the Metro Richmond area.

As a resource partner of the SBA, SCORE is America’s small business resource with over 300 chapters and 10,000 volunteer business mentors nationwide. The SCORE Richmond chapter has been serving the Richmond area since 1965.

We are a volunteer, non-profit organization whose mission is to foster a vibrant small business community in the Greater Richmond area through mentoring and education. We provide individual free and confidential business mentoring and low-cost workshops tailored to meet the needs of small businesses to achieve and sustain profitability and growth.

With over 60 members, both retired and working, SCORE Richmond volunteers are real-world professionals with time-tested knowledge who donate thousands of hours to help small businesses succeed.  Our mentors have significant experience in the ownership, operation, and/or management of both small and large businesses as well as non-profits, with expertise in accounting, finance, marketing, management, international, manufacturing, and business plan preparation, just to name a few.

This past year (2019), SCORE Richmond helped over 700 business owners via mentoring and over 1900 attendees via workshops. Our economic impact is estimated to exceed $30M a year in the Metro Richmond area.
