Welcome to the Worcester SCORE Chapter

Worcester SCORE has provided free, expert advice to Worcester County businesses since 1967. Over 30 mentors, both working and retired executive volunteers, have a wealth of hands-on experience across many functions and industries. 

SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed nationwide. SCORE is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and has been mentoring small business owners since 1964.

SCORE is a network of 10,000+ volunteers who offer FREE and confidential business counseling services to entrepreneurs. SCORE also provides local workshops and events throughout the country to connect small business owners with the people and information they need, as well as online workshops available at any time. SCORE provides resources, templates and tools to assist entrepreneurs in developing tools and plans they need to navigate their way to small business success.
