Know the SCORE!

Did you know?

SCORE mentored and trained 590,550 aspiring and existing small business owners in 2010 and those businesses generated $19.4 billion in revenue. SCORE is a professional association with 364 offices nationwide and over 13,000 experienced business volunteers committed to cultivating and developing entrepreneurial talent. SCORE, in partnership with the SBA, offers free consulting services, workshops and mentors to help entrepreneurs start and grow their business. Because the U.S. economy is so dependent on entrepreneurs and their new companies to create jobs, it is critical that students understand the entrepreneurial process and the resources available to would-be entrepreneurs. Whether students want to become entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs, every student should know the SCORE.
