SCORE Tuolumne County | Serving Tuolumne and Calaveras counties
SCORE is a national organization supported and partially funded by the Small Business Administration, in existence since 1964. It is a unique American organization that synthesizes two historic national ideals: entrepreneurial spirit and volunteerism. There are 10,000+ expert volunteers in 250 chapters covering 1,500 communities nationwide, empowering local business owners, boosting regional economies, and growing the larger American economy. We have educated more than 11 million established and aspiring entrepreneurs. In 2019 alone, SCORE mentors helped start 29,681 new businesses, create 97,387 new jobs, and helped 67% of our clients to increase their revenue. Prospective entrepreneurs with a mentor are five times more likely to start a success business, and small business clients who receive 3+ hours of mentoring report higher revenues and increased business growth.
Tuolumne County SCORE, founded in 1989, offers mentors for local clients that want to start a business or non-profits, or need support to grow the current business/non-profit. All mentors in the Tuolumne County Chapter are past or current business owners who live in the county.
SCORE chapters have two basic service goals:
- Mentor clients in business startup and strategic ongoing operational practices and
- Provide business education through local workshops and online workshops.
Since 2016 the Tuolumne chapter has been reaching out to the local community to increase its client base through participation in local events, establishing partnerships with local business-orientated organizations, emailing important business updates and availability of grants and loans through emails, and posting Facebook notifications of workshops or grants and loans available to for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations. We help dozens of businesses and non-profit organizations each year, and everything we offer our clients is 100% Free and 100% Confidential.
