The Polk County branch of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) is actively assisting existing businesses as well as individuals who are looking to start their own business in our community.
SCORE is a non-profit organization, which provides free, confidential mentoring to help individuals start and operate a successful small business. Working and retired executives and small business owners offer advice and one-on-one mentoring sessions on topics such as developing a business plan, securing financing, day-to-day management, advertising and marketing to name a few.
We also offer low-cost workshops to provide aspiring entrepreneurs with additional training on specific business topics.
SCORE is a resource partner and operates in cooperation with the SBA (Small Business Administration). Our local branch is fortunate to have a group of dedicated mentors with a wide variety of business experiences. Each of us has had the good fortune of having had excellent mentors in our careers. Mentoring is an interesting process.
