By providing mentorship and sharing ethically sound business practices, SCORE's nationwide initiatives help entrepreneurs and small business owners at various stages in their professional lives.
SCORE partners make many of these small business initiatives possible. Their support and guidance allow us to offer a complete range of opportunities all across the country.
SCORE for All
When it comes to starting a business, everyone faces different roadblocks and barriers. SCORE for All aims to address the challenges that different entrepreneurs face throughout their business journey and give them the tools and skills to achieve their goals.
Starting a business is by no means a simple process. With the help of SCORE mentors and business experts, we’ve built a set of tools to help everyone start their journey on the right foot. From refining your business idea to launching your business, this guide helps you to stay on track.
Small Business Resilience
SCORE’s resilience program is there for you when things go south. From guiding you towards resources and articles on overcoming natural disasters and building an emergency fund, SCORE is here to help you become your safety net.
National Small Business Week
National Small Business Week is one week each year where SCORE partners with the SBA to host events, ceremonies, and educational sessions. This serves as an opportunity to recognize entrepreneurs and business owners for their hard work and impact on their communities.
The CEO Forum was formed by SCORE chapters to address strategic issues in a peer group setting. The members of the Forums are passionate about improving the performance of their businesses through shared experiences and knowledge. Each CEO Forum group is comprised of 10-12 executives from non-competing businesses who meet monthly as an ongoing team.
Orange County Forum | San Diego Forum
Roundtable sessions provide a space for small business owners to present and receive advice from one another on short-term goals, strategic challenges and plans, and discussions of specific issues of interest to the group. Outside experts attend occasionally to add to the depth of discussion. All discussions are facilitated by experienced SCORE mentors.
