SCORE is a NATIONAL nonprofit association dedicated to the formation, growth and success of small businesses nationwide.   SCORE provides free and confidential small business advice to help you build your business – from idea – to start-up – to success.    SCORE’s extensive networks of  retired and working volunteers are experienced entrepreneurs and business people. These volunteers provide free business counseling and experienced advice as a public service to all types of businesses, in all stages of development. 


Free counseling sessions are offered by SCORE. These counseling sessions are typically scheduled during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, except holidays.   Contact the SCORE office near you for an appointment today.  Time slots fill quickly, so early scheduling is recommended.  Some SCORE locations offer evening counseling sessions.

Generally, the initial counseling session will last about 1 hour. As your plans develop, we continue to be interested in helping you achieve your business goals, so follow-up sessions are encouraged.  Again, there is no charge, no matter how many follow-up sessions are needed. In addition to counseling at our office, counseling can be arranged for your convenience at other mutually agreeable times and locations, such as at local libraries.
