SCORE is a nationally-recognized volunteer arm of the Small Business Administration (SBA).

SCORE is composed of entrepreneurs, executives and high level manager, who want to strengthen the economic core of our community by sharing their own business expertise with:

  •   Individuals who want to start a business or non-profit
  •   Individuals who want to grow a business or non-profit
  •   Individuals struggling and need some sound business advice
  •   Individuals who just have a business question or need to explore an idea
