Great Ideas for your Small Business:
Get Free Financing Help (USE A SCORE COUNSELOR)
In 2001 counselors from the service Corps of Retired Executives counseled more than 250,000 entrepreneurs. Since its founding in 1964, more than 4.2 million business owners have participated in SCORE’s extensive counseling and seminar programs.
No matter where you live, free and low-cost help is provided by more than 12,000 counselors working through 389 chapters across the United States.
“Probably the most frequently asked question is how to find money and manage finances,” said Ken Yancey, SCORE’s executive director. To provide high-quality help, SCORE partners with major corporations like Visa to provide extra help to business owners.
In addition to bookshelves filled with books and helpful publications, SCORE offices sponsor all kinds of workshops ranging from starting a business to more advanced sessions on export financing.
