SCORE Central Virginia

Mentoring Conversation

A SCORE mentor is an adviser who uses his or her expertise to help entrepreneurs launch their dreams...and small business owners reach their goals. Mentors provide free business advice and education using the knowledge acquired from their career experiences and ongoing learning......all delivered virtually in a few hours per month on a self-managed schedule.

As a mentor, you’ll help clients to better understand the roadmap to starting a business, to assess options and solve problems, to make their businesses more efficient, and assist with developing long-term business plans. Additionally, you will experience the growth of your own skills as each client has a different background, a different business idea and different goals; while, at the same time the solutions and tools to help them are fast-evolving especially with the internet.

The ideal mentor is a good listener, curious, empathetic, flexible, and thrives on helping others succeed. Mentors often have significant experience within their field, excellent communication skills, and the ability to dedicate a few hours a week from the comfort of home.

Apply to be a mentor in Central Virginia if you have experience as a business owner, or in a corporate functional role or general management, or in business or commerce education, or other business related profession including but not limited to marketing, finance and accounting, information technology, etc.

SCORE is a nonprofit resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration that helps aspiring and existing entrepreneurs succeed. Every year, our volunteers help thousands of entrepreneurs achieve their dreams of starting small businesses and achieving new levels of success. Volunteering is a way for you to give back, network with business experts, and share your knowledge. Join SCORE today to make a meaningful difference in Charlottesville, Fredericksburg and the surrounding counties of Central Virginia.
