Worcester SCORE's volunteer executives have provided FREE, experienced advice to Worcester County's small businesses since 1967.
Nearly 30 Worcester SCORE mentors, who are active and retired executive volunteers, provide FREE and confidential growth advice to any small businesses, including start-ups. Mentoring can be conducted at any of our seven Chamber of Commerce branch offices, at the client's place of business, or by email. For a one-hour appointment, please call the closest of our branches in: Worcester, Westborough, Fitchburg, Whitinsville, Devens, Sturbridge, and Marlborough. Detailed office information is at: http://worcester.score.org/node/147167.
Worcester SCORE acknowledges and greatly appreciates the tremendous support of our seven hosting Chambers of Commerce.
Every spring and fall, our Worcester SCORE mentors conduct a seven-week series of Tuesday evening workshops in Marlborough, called "Successful Start-Ups." These low-cost workshops provide valuable information and techniques for establishing and managing a successful business. Added speakers, such as an area attorney or banker, are sometimes featured as well. Details are available at http://worcester.score.org/node/147567.
