SCORE Mentors provide guidance/counseling/mentoring for small businesses. SCORE Mentors work with individuals looking to start a business, existing businesses that need specific skill support, businesses that may be looking to sell/liquidate, and general business questions. SCORE mentoring sessions are free to the entrepeneur/business. SCORE conducts many business workshops per month in the Dallas area. Many of the workshops are free, and some have a modest fee to participate.
SCORE is an all-volunteer organization (operating under the guidance of the Small Business Administration) that has 11,000 mentors across the U.S. The Dallas SCORE chapter has 60+ mentors with a variety of business backgrounds and expertise. We can usually place a small business owner in contact with a mentor with specific background, when expertise is needed.
