North Bay Businesses Turn to SCORE as Valuable Resource

Published May 24th, 2017

If you run a business, you face daily challenges — from increasing revenue, cutting costs, raising money, marketing, hiring, and much more.

Wouldn't it be great to talk with a business consultant and receive experienced advice? We would like to introduce you to SCORE, a nonprofit association dedicated to helping entrepreneurs and small businesses start, grow, and succeed.

SCORE is made up of experienced business men and women who volunteer their time to give back to local businesses and the community. The North Coast Chapter serves businesses in Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties, and is a free resource to assist in day-to-day challenges as well as strategic issues including:

  • Growing business
  • Finding funding sources
  • Increasing sales and profitability
  • Managing cash flow with accounting
  • Streamlining operations and controlling inventory
  • Getting the most out of employees

SCORE is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and provides free business consulting for companies ranging in size from start-ups to large entities with hundreds of employees. Since its founding in 1964, SCORE has helped countless businesses through its 370 chapters throughout the country.

In addition to consulting and mentoring services, SCORE also offers a wide range of business-related workshops throughout the year. If you are interested in learning more about SCORE or have a business issue or difficult decision or business initiative that you would like to share with one of our seasoned counselors, visit www.northcoast.score.org.


Local Workshops Focus on Business Training and Skills

North Coast SCORE offers business workshops on a number of important topics that benefit entrepreneurs as well as senior executives. The workshops, which take place at the Finley Center in Santa Rosa, are available at a very reasonable cost. For more information and to register today, visit https://northcoast.score.org/content/take-workshop-103.


Check out what a few local business owners have to say about working with SCORE:

Kevin Devine, Devine Frames: "It's a cool thing to get free counseling. I paid to have a management consultant — it was a couple of thousand dollars. SCORE was much better."

Stephanie Gagne, Simple Care Products: "It was great to be able to bounce ideas off them, and they gave me experienced feedback. They also helped with my business strategy and to make decisions."

Rebecca Valentine, Sonoma Gnome: "It's great to have someone as a sounding board…someone with decades of experience offering help. It's incredibly valuable. SCORE is a gift to the community."

Carina Whitham, Whitham Group: "I was pleasantly surprised as the counselors are informative and experienced."

Jeane Sloane, Local Authors Distribution: "It's really nice to know you have someone out there to help me with my small-time business."
