SCORE®, a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration, is a national organization with approximately 400 chapters and 11,000 members nationwide.
SCORE is an acronym for "Service Corps of Retired Executives." When created in 1964 members were mostly men and women retired from business. However, with the burgeoning of business technology, the inclusion of younger members, active in business and experienced in current methods, has been encouraged. Now the reference to SCORE as "Counselors to America's Small Business" better explains what we do.
The purpose of SCORE remains the same: professionals who volunteer to help new generations of aspiring business owners make their dreams come true when starting or growing a business.
The focus of SCORE is business counseling. Confidential counseling can last for a few sessions or several years based on individual needs as one ascends the SCORE Stairway to Business Success. One-on-one counseling can take place at the main SCORE office, convenient SOUTH EAST MICHIGAN LOCATIONS or at the client's place of business.
