Getting Started

If you are starting a small business or you are already in business, SCORE can help.

Starting a Business

If you are thinking about starting a small business, we invite you to attend a free Start Up Basics Workshop.
(Click on the “Workshops” tab above and select a session that best fits your schedule.)

After attending an Orientation Workshop, you can schedule an appointment with a SCORE mentor in two ways.

  1. Click “Mentors” and follow the instructions there; or
  2. Call the SCORE office (844)232-7227 and a convenient appointment will be arranged.

Already in Business

If you choose to bypass the Orientation Workshop, please click Mentors to find out how to schedule an appointment or call the SCORE office at (844)232-7227.

Please complete Form 641 and bring a copy with you to the appointment with the mentor.

Counseling is also available by telephone and email if that format is more convenient for you.
