Serving Greater Houston since 1965

SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses succeed through education and mentorship.  We are a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

We Help Small Businesses Start and Succeed.

Founded in 1964, SCORE (formerly known as Service Corps Of Retired Executives) is a valuable network of tens of thousands volunteers who, through 300+ chapters nationwide, offer small business entrepreneurs practical business advice at no charge for the Life of Your Business (from conception to profitable growth).

The Houston Chapter was established in 1965.  We have more than 130+ volunteers covering the 9-county Greater Houston Area.  We offer mentoring at many locations around the city for your convenience.

Because our work is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and thanks to our network of 11,000+ volunteers, we are able to deliver our services at no charge or at very low cost.

We can provide:

  • Volunteer MENTORS who share their expertise across 62 industries
  • Free, confidential business MENTORING in person or via email
  • Free business TOOLS, templates and tips here online
  • Inexpensive or free business WORKSHOPS (locally) and webinars (online 24/7)
