SCORE Wichita Chapter Provides Mentoring for Small Business Owners in Kansas
SCORE's Wichita Chapter was founded in 1976 and has the distinction of being one of the oldest SCORE chapters in the nation. Our Wichita mentors are experienced and seasoned business owners and managers. Over the past 40+ years, they have volunteered to use their business experience, energy, and knowledge to assist start-ups and existing small business owners. Our dynamic chapter now has more than 35 business-savvy volunteers in the Wichita area whose experience and skills have positively impacted hundreds of businesses.
Wichita SCORE volunteers work closely with the Small Business Association (SBA) in meeting the expectation of over 600 entrepreneurs from all industries each year. Our counselors volunteer over 5000 hours per year networking, reaching out to the community, and giving business, guidance, and leadership. We sponsor business workshops, support local colleges, and high schools, city-wide job fairs, and talk to local groups about our mission and passion.
