What is SCORE?
The national SCORE Association is a not-for-profit organization with 320+ chapters and 11,000+ volunteer mentors throughout the United States.
SCORE is a resource partner of the Small Business Administration (SBA). You can find information about the national organization at http://scorechicago.org/about-us/
SCORE Chicago’s 120+ mentors and consultants provide services from 30 locations in Cook, Lake and part of Will County.
We offer free and low-cost business education workshops on a wide range of topics, from insurance and financing to website and social media marketing, in the downtown office and in community locations.
SCORE mentors can advise clients about options for loans and other types of business financing. SCORE and the SBA do not provide financing directly.
