SCORE provides would be entrepreneurs and small business owners with an invaluable tool.......information! In Minneapolis I've worked closely with several SCORE counselors, all of whom have dedicated countless hours coaching and mentoring people with dreams of building successful small businesses.

FranNet has partnered with Score for several years. We believe the work SCORE does with small business people is critical to our economy. The SCORE volunteers are dedicated to helping small business people succeed. They give of their time and talents in a selfless maner. The management team and Board of SCORE are some of the best people I have ever had the honor to work with.

The personal satisfaction from my SCORE involvement are the clients with whom we have become closely involved and sharing with them the hurdles, sometimes disapointments; and eventual the joy in seeing a business survive in some cases and grow in other cases.

SCORE and The SCORE Foundation work tirelessly to support America's small businesses. As an attendee of The SCORE Foundation's annual SCORE Awards, I've had the pleasure of learning about so many individual success stories and their dedicated SCORE volunteers. This organization is inspirational!

The organization helps me as a small business as they hold workshops on topics such as federal contracting, payroll, and marketing. I value the services as it helps me to grow and manage my business.

Actually my role with SCORE has been as a volunteer, client (SCORE helped me with my first business plan) and field expert (as a regular blogger for SCORE). SCORE is the only place where small business owners can get advice and help that is in their best interest. No product/service pushing, no political agendas - just wisdom and experience to help grow small business. I can also say that Ken Yancey and his amazing team have taken this non-profit to a world class organization.

I have been a volunteer for over 5 years and have seen the impact that SCORE has had in helping people trying to start a business or who are struggling while in business. Helping people to realize their entrepeneurial dreams and create jobs helps not only the people involved but the local economy as well. The fact that nearly 13,000 volunteers across the country are supported by a handful of people in Virgina is absolutely amazing. Their dedication and commitment to the mission of SCORE is without parallel.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
