Women Entrepreneurs

SCORE is here to help women small business owners.

SCORE is here to help you fulfill your business ownership goals and achieve greater success. Along with resources and tools created especially for women entrepreneurs, SCORE offers free business mentors. SCORE mentors, many of them successful women small business owners in their own right, are ready to help you achieve your business goals.

Veteran Entrepreneurs

Veteran business owners play a significant role in the US economy.

In 2016, the US Census Bureau reported that veterans own a whopping 7.5% of small businesses in the US – that’s 405,235 businesses out of 5.4 million nationwide! SCORE  has compiled resources that will help veterans start or grow their businesses.

Hispanic Entrepreneurs

Hispanic entrepreneurs are the fastest-growing group of business owners in the U.S. 

With the advice of SCORE mentors and Hispanic business leaders we have collected educational content, and online workshops to give you all the assistance you need to reach your goals. Remember, a helping hand is just a click away.

Black Entrepreneurs

Right now, Black entrepreneurs are facing unique barriers to business success.

At SCORE, we’re working to change that by removing those obstacles and providing Black small business owners with access to personalized support. That’s why we created SCORE for Black Entrepreneurs: to meet you where you are and get you where you want to go.
