Fuel For Small Business Growth Right Here at Home

SCORE supports Maine’s vibrant small business sector through FREE confidential mentoring, FREE and low-cost business workshops, and vetted resources for entrepreneurs. Most of our mentoring relationships are measured in years, not months.

Working Together

SCORE regularly collaborates with other small business resource providers in our community, such as the Department of Economic and Community Development, the Maine Technology Institute, the Maine Center for Entrepreneurs, the Women’s Business Center, Small Business Development Centers, and New Ventures Maine. SCORE is always seeking new opportunities to support business growth in Maine.
