The Bloomington SCORE Chapter is part of SCORE “Counselors to America’s Small Businesses”, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth, and success of small businesses. Bloomington SCORE provides free and confidential counseling tailored to meet the needs of your small business and your personal objectives. We also have an office at the Chamber of Commerce Building in Spencer, IN.
We are twenty professionals with decades of experience in a wide variety of businesses and nonprofit organizations. Our objective is to provide sound advice based on our many years of experience in a wide variety of business settings. Counselors always work in pairs to ensure you are getting more complete feedback. One hour sessions are always confidential. Clients may return as often as they feel they need to seek our counsel.
Here are examples of what clients say about us:
“We knew we had an excellent educational software program, but we did not have the business knowledge necessary to define our plan. We were referred to SCORE and the experience was invaluable. The counselors at SCORE helped us in so many ways. Based on their feedback, we completely revised our strategic and marketing plans. SCORE has been a great resource to us. We can’t thank their volunteers enough.”
“As a sole proprietor of a small business I called SCORE to ask some general information about hiring an employee or working with an independent contractor. The atmosphere at the meeting was very friendly and I received the basic information I needed and some more detailed references to check out. The advice was useful and accurate. I am already planning to meet again with SCORE for more advise to improve my business plan. SCORE is a great resource for a small start-up business that can’t afford a consultant, but needs various kinds of information to move in the right direction. Maria C.
