Get Started, Find Your Mentor! Take a Workshop or Seminar
Ruoyu Loughry of Loughry CPA

"My mentors are always willing to help with their years of experience and wisdom. They ask very good questions to get me brainstorming, and then help me pull back my thought train to stay focused. Everytime, they summarize our conversation, and leave me homework for the next meeting. With Bill and Larry, I am growing business, challenging my own limits, and contributing more with confidence. I strongly recommend business owners come to SCORE to get help. As you start or grow your business, SCORE will be along the way to support you."

"My mentor, Paul Barsley, far exceeded my expectations for navigating the logistics of how to set up a business. He even gave me great advice for how to make that business successful - including marketing and business planning advice."

Patience Buckwalter, founder of Grape Leaf Café and Empowerment Center

“Rob Gelphman was able to support by helping me rethink priorities, set goals, and focus. Rob was delighted by our product, and his enthusiasm was wonderful fuel, especially during stressful times. His unique combination of humor, libanility, experience and thoughtful coaching was a huge asset to our business. I would not hesitate to recommend SCORE mentoring for anyone I know who needs business support. It is an invaluable offering to this community, and I am impressed and grateful for the generosity.”

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.
