SCORE is here to help women small business owners.
Numbering in at 13M in the U.S., women-owned businesses comprise a vital and growing segment of the economy. This segment employs 9.4M workers, ushers in innovation, and introduces new products as part of a vibrant U.S. economy. Women entrepreneurs bring a unique perspective and sometimes must break ceilings in traditionally male-dominated industries or roles.
SCORE is here to help you fulfill your business ownership goals and achieve greater success. Along with resources and tools created especially for women entrepreneurs, SCORE offers free and confidential business advice. SCORE mentors, many of them successful women small business owners, are ready to help you achieve your business goals.
Women are leading the way in the business world.
The 2019 State of Women-Owned Business Report by American Express found that the number of women-owned businesses climbed to nearly 13 million, representing 42% of all businesses in the United States. Women-owned businesses employ 9.4 million workers and generate $1.9 trillion in annual revenue.
In 2019, 61% of our clients were women. SCORE is dedicated to helping women owners succeed. SCORE has a diverse volunteer force of qualified business mentors, all skilled and ready to help women entrepreneurs. Once you request a free business mentor, SCORE will match you to a seasoned, experienced business expert.
