Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with SCORE!
Over the past decade, Hispanic-owned small businesses have made a significant impact, boasting a 34% growth rate and contributing a remarkable $500 billion to the U.S. economy. Yet, amidst this impressive growth, Hispanic business owners face genuine challenges.
But you don't have to navigate these challenges alone. SCORE is here to support you. We've been instrumental in helping countless Hispanic entrepreneurs find success in their small businesses. Just ask Sandra Vazquez, Owner & Operator of SWT Fitness, who said, "SCORE helped me develop the roadmap I needed to secure funding and expand my gym into a prime retail location."

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.
Since 1964, SCORE has educated and mentored more than 11 million small business owners and entrepreneurs. We're looking for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to serve in a variety of roles — from knowledgeable business mentors to local community advocates.
