Since 1964, the SCORE Association of over 12,000 skillful volunteer mentors has assisted more than 10 million entrepreneurs in starting or growing their businesses. We are committed to serving another one million by 2020. SCORE is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration SBA and is its most experienced resource partner.
SCORE New Hampshire continues to be the state’s largest and most proficient provider of business mentoring and educational services through over 175 certified mentors from six regional chapters. We also provide valuable online business information, resource materials, tips, and tools, along with a robust webinar program available 24/7.
Our no-fee confidential services include one-on-one mentoring, email mentoring, workshops, and easy online access to business information and self-guided programs and tools. Expertise and support is provided on a variety of key topic areas, including: new business ventures, securing business loans, business planning and growth, divestitures, investments, and even bankruptcies.
Our impact has been significant. For the third consecutive year, our Client Engagement Survey, conducted by Price Waterhouse Coopers, resulted in SCORE New Hampshire adding 500+ new businesses within the state. Additionally, through our mentoring and educational programs, 716 small businesses grew with an average of over $100,000 in new revenues and the creation of over 425 new jobs in the past year. More than 100 workshops were held statewide, helping to educate and inform over 1,600 budding entrepreneurs and small business owners.
As reported by the SBA, SCORE clients who receive three or more hours of mentoring report higher revenues, increased business growth, and are again setting records for the survival of new businesses over the one year mark.
