Right now, minority entrepreneurs are facing unique barriers to business success. At SCORE, we’re working to change that by removing those obstacles and providing minority-owned businesses with access to personalized support in our SCORE for All program: to meet business owners where they are and help them reach their business goals.
As a Mentor, you will use your industry-based knowledge and expertise to help clients solve problems, increase business efficiency and assist with developing long-term business plans. Mentors often have significant experience within their field, excellent communication skills and the ability to dedicate a few hours a week.
As a Subject Matter Expert Mentors (SME), you would be an adjunct expert called in to provide specialized support and advice to assist a SCORE mentor when their client needs a deeper dive on a specific topic.
Topics where minority-owned businesses need support include (but are not limited to): government contracting; minority business enterprise certification; finance; accounting; human resources management; website design, development, and webmaster skills; social media and digital marketing skills; taxation and specialized finance skills; IT infrastructure and cloud computing understanding and advice.
If you have a few hours per month and want to share your specialized expertise with a local small business owner, become a SCORE Subject Matter Expert. 5+ years relevant business experience and location in NE Wisconsin required.
