SCORE is a nonprofit, dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow and succeed nationwide. In Charlotte, we have over 85 Certified SCORE Mentors. Our goal is to help small business owners increase the value of their businesses, solve operating problems, help owners access funding and assist non-profits. These confidential services are free to small business owners, including start-ups as well as later stage companies. One of SCORE’s specialties is helping aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners navigate the process of getting started, e.g., assessing their readiness, developing marketing and business plans and much more. Our business mentoring is face-to-face and tailored to your needs. We meet at our SCORE office in South Park, libraries, coffee shops or other off-site locations.
