SCORE impacts the community by providing services, programs, and resources to small business owners. SCORE is the starting point for new entrepreneurs, as well as existing business clients, seeking guidance. We meet with our clients face to face, online, or on the phone, to create actionable business plans. SCORE provides expertise on financials that matter: such as cash flow, achieving a healthy balance sheet, and improving the bottom line. Our services are free, and we are here “For the Life of Your Business.” Most of our mentoring relationships are measured in years, not months. Many clients have described us as, “a one person Board of Directors.”
SCORE certified mentors have owned and operated their own small businesses, or served in management positions for both large and small companies.
The key ingredient SCORE mentors bring is real-world business experience you can count on.
Being an entrepreneur is a demanding and exhausting journey. To push your business forward requires you to move beyond your comfort zone and take risks. That’s where SCORE can help. We listen and enable you to focus on your priorities, and sometimes to fail forward. We are the mentors you can trust with your fears and as well as your dreams.
In Maine we collaborate as one big business ecosystem. SCORE regularly networks with other resource providers in our community, such as the Maine Center for Entrepreneurial Development, the Women’s Business Center, Small Business Development Centers, Women, Work & Community, USM and MTI to name a few. SCORE is grateful for its role in serving the entrepreneurial community in Maine.Meeting Information
