We Help Small Businesses Like Yours

SCORE Logo@300x.png
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 over fifty years.

Because our work is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and thanks to our network of 10,000 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 MENTORING in person, via email or by video
  • Free business TOOLS, templates and tips here online                                                                                                                      Inexpensive or free business WORKSHOPS (locally) and webinars (online 24/7)

Our 300 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.
