About Us

Our Mission

SCORE grows successful small businesses across America, one business at a time.

We Help Small Businesses Like Yours

SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals through education and mentorship. We have been doing this for nearly fifty years.

Because our work is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and thanks to our network of 13,000+ volunteers, we are able to deliver our services at no charge or at very low cost.

We can provide:

Volunteer MENTORS who share their expertise across 62 industries
    (Free, confidential business counseling in person or via email)

Inexpensive or free business WEBINARS (online 24/7)

Inexpensive or free business WORKSHOPS (locally)

BUSINESS ARTICLES by SCORE Minnesota (online 24/7)

Free business TEMPLATES and TOOLS online

Our 364 chapters hold events and workshops locally across the U.S. and its territories, and match up entrepreneurs with local, volunteer mentors.

SCORE is headquartered in Herndon, VA.
