As a catalyst for business and job creation, SCORE helps strengthen our local economy. 

SCORE helps small businesses achieve their goals through our mentoring and training. That success not only affects the business owner, but also the communities they live and work in, and the larger American Economy. Every year, SCORE partners with PricewaterhouseCoopers to survey our clients and understand our impact on their business and the nation.

Strengthening America’s Economy
