About SCORE's Services

Working with their 389 local chapters, SCORE reaches small business owners across the country—from Maine to Hawaii. SCORE chapters serve as a local connection to small business know how.

At SCORE, they realize that small businesses have 1,001 tasks and one chance at business success. Establishing, growing and improving a business takes a sophisticated mix of entrepreneurial vision, business management know-how and specialized knowledge. Through free, small business counseling and support services, SCORE volunteers are available to keep businesses going and growing. From marketing advice to finances, sales and operations, SCORE counselors help businesses find the answers. Just as important, counselors can help entrepreneurs develop and think through their business plan to make sure they’re asking the right questions. When you seek help from a SCORE business counselor, you get the benefit of all his or her ideas—and the continuity of knowing that someone who knows and understands your small business is available for ongoing support. Seeking advice from a SCORE counselor provides a distinct advantage as small businesses go forward.
