Our coverage area population is approximately 350,000 people which encompass approximately 52,000 small businesses. SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals through education and mentorship. We have been doing this for over fifty years. Because our work is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and thanks to our network of 11,000+ volunteers, we are able to deliver our services at no charge. Our 320+ chapters hold events and workshops locally across the U.S. and its territories and match up entrepreneurs with local, volunteer mentors. SCORE is headquartered in Herndon, VA.
