SCORE Builds Legacy of Service
Since 1964, SCORE’s mission has been focused on the American dream of small business ownership. SCORE works by matching business-management counselors with current and prospective small business owners in need of expert advice. In the 1970s, when SCORE chapters were formed, SCORE expanded its services to offer workshops and seminars on a variety of business issues. In 1996, SCORE ventured online to provide small business advice via email, serving the needs of entrepreneurs on a 24/7 basis. Today, SCORE provides more than 400,000 counseling and training sessions each year, including more than 100,000 counseling sessions conducted by email counselors online.
