Small Business Mentor

Join the Fox Valley Chapter of SCORE and share your business experience and knowledge with entrepreneurs. You'll team up with colleagues to meet personally with small business owners and start-ups in your community. You'll help them create business plans, formulate marketing strategies, find financial resources, and much more.

SCORE Mentors pledge to contribute to the SCORE mission in meaningful ways. Our data shows that clients who receive mentoring are more likely to see positive outcomes such as businesses started, jobs created and increased revenues. Our clients rely on our Mentors’ expertise to help them succeed. They depend on our service, our time and our prompt response to their requests.

As a Mentor, you’ll be assigned mentoring requests that we receive from clients. These requests contain information about the client including their name, business name, industry and business question. You’ll use that information to contact the client and schedule a meeting. In the meeting, you’ll work to understand the client’s business, their needs and challenges. Then you’ll answer their questions and guide them to solutions, information and resources to help them make sound decisions for their business. Your job as a Mentor is to guide, support and encourage our clients. You will not do the work for them.
