As a volunteer SCORE business mentor you are someone with entrepreneurial business experience. You will serve as a trusted confidante over an extended period of time, free of charge. Business mentors will advise people in order to develop their skills by guiding clients to solve problems, become more efficient, and assist with developing long-term business plans. Mentors use their talents for teaching clients to succeed in all aspects of business.
The ideal mentor is empathetic, flexible, and loves connecting people to the right resources. Mentors often have significant experience within their field, excellent communication skills, and the ability to dedicate a few hours a week.
