SCORE is a nonprofit nationwide association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed nationwide. We provide free consulting services on a broad variety of topics including writing a business plan, advertising and marketing strategies, negotiating leases, trademark registrations and navigating local government licensing and regulatory issues.
The Naples Chapter of SCORE is an active, generous community of 70 experienced businesspeople with expertise in a variety of fields and industries. We offer free mentoring and no- or low-cost workshops in Naples, Bonita Springs, Marco Island, and surrounding areas. Collier County is an exciting place for entrepreneurs, with businesses ranging from traditional to social benefit organizations to highly technical start-ups. Every year, SCORE volunteers help thousands of entrepreneurs with their businesses.
Volunteering at SCORE is a way to give back to the community, connect with the Naples small business ecosystem, and pass on your knowledge and expertise to the next generation of entrepreneurs. It's also a great way to meet people and to continue to expand your own business knowledge and personal development!
