Have you ever wanted to start a business and had no clue where to even begin?

Or maybe you’re already in business and the global pandemic has placed you in a constant loop of uncertainty and fear?

Do you ride it out? Stay afloat? Incur debt? Apply for loans or grants?

Whether you are new to business or well established, a SCORE mentor can be the difference between bankruptcy and growth. Our Mentors can provide the answer to a simple question that has had you stumped for weeks or sit with you as you outline your vision. 

You might be asking, ‘What is SCORE and how could it possibly help me?”

Take Alex for example.

He’s owned a downtown espresso/coffee shop for over a decade with great success. Until COVID. When businesses were closed- he lost his prime customer base. He reached out to SCORE, scheduled time with one of our Mentors and discussed viable options for surviving through the lean times Covid presented. He pivoted in the direction of an easy take-out system as well as signed his employees up for the PPP grant offered by the SBA. He then added his shop to the growing demand of DoorDash and GrubHub services, which allowed him to flourish during the pandemic.
