Frequently Asked Questions

SCORE mentoring is a free service designed to help small businesses startup and grow by providing advice, consulting on best practices, and education on the topics faced by small businesses.
SCORE mentoring sessions are typically scheduled for an hour. Your mentor will listen to your issues and alongside you will help develop a path forward to address them. This will include sharing of their expertise and skill, optimizing of business plans, and recommending proven strategies, tools, and ideas.
Free SCORE Mentoring assistance is available to you whether your company is a nonprofit or a for profit business venture, whether you are a solopreneur or an enterprise with employees, just starting out or already in business for a number of years.
Come prepared with your business plan and your financial aspirations. They can be a contained in a formal document or drawn on the back of a napkin. Knowing your starting point and with an eye on what you plan to achieve will lead to a productive discussion on next steps.
A SCORE mentoring relationship lasts as long as you need it. It can be a few meaningful sessions to achieve a specific goal or overcome a particular challenge. It could be a relationship that lasts for years. Small business owners who receive three or more hours of mentoring report higher revenues and increased growth than those who proceed on their own.
