SCORE Twin Cities is part of the national nonprofit SCORE Association providing entrepreneurial education allowing start-up, growth, and success of the nation's small business communities. Our mission is to provide business mentoring and education to help entrepreneurs and small businesses evaluate and prepare business plans, stabilize, grow, innovate, and succeed. SCORE volunteers serve as "Counselors to America's Small Business."

SCORE Twin Cities provides free and confidential business counseling tailored to meet the needs of small businesses in the Twin Cities metro area, and western Wisconsin. We also offer business seminars for both start-up entrepreneurs and established small business owners.

The women and men of SCORE Twin Cities are real-world professionals with time-tested know-how who donate thousands of hours to help small businesses succeed. Our volunteers hail from every facet of the business community. Some have worked at large corporations while others have served in our military or worked for educational institutions, or for the local or federal government. Many of our mentors have also started their own companies. Our counselors are experts in such areas as accounting, finance, marketing, management, operations, and business plan preparation.
