Frequently asked questions about SCORE Mentoring:
SCORE mentoring is a free service offered to any citizen or permanent resident that owns or wants to start a business. Partnering with you one-on-one, SCORE mentors support your success by providing experienced advice, consulting on best practices, and educating you on small business topics.
SCORE ensures you are connected with a mentor in a way that works for you and them. During the mentor match process, you can select areas you need help, your preferred methods of communication, language and industry. These details make it easy to find the best mentor for your needs. In some cases, having access to more than one subject matter expert may benefit you. For example, if you are looking to expand your business to a new area, you may want a mentor with a background in marketing and another who is a franchising expert. An unlimited amount of business experts can mentor you!
SCORE mentoring sessions are collaborative meetings between the small business owner and the SCORE mentor. They are typically scheduled for an hour and can be held virtually, through online meetings, phone calls, email, or even in person if you would like to be paired with a local mentor. You can share your business goals, progress, challenges, and questions during these sessions. SCORE mentors will offer advice, resources, and insights so you gain clarity on your next best steps.
A SCORE mentoring relationship lasts as long as you need it! That can mean a few meaningful sessions to achieve a specific goal or overcome a challenge. Or, it can be a SCORE mentoring relationship that lasts for years, when you always have a trusted advisor for the life of your small business.
Let us do the matching for you.

Enter your zip code below and fill out the mentoring request form. We will pair you with a mentor and assist you in setting up a free mentoring appointment.
