Our Chapter seeks to help small business people start or manage their business by face to face counseling, email counseling or seminars, workshops and business round tables. SCORE Baton Rouge is a nonprofit association providing free and confidential business counseling tailored to meet the needs of small business and their personal objectives. SCORE Baton Rouge also offers periodic seminars and workshops (for a modest fee to cover expenses) for both start-up entrepreneurs and small businesses already in operation.
Our SCORE volunteers are real-world professionals with time-tested knowledge who donate thousands of hours annually to help small businesses succeed. Counselors are experts in such areas as accounting, law, finance, marketing, management and business plan preparation.
SCORE's mentors, comprised of active and retired business men and women, provide clients with free and confidential business counseling. Counseling can be conducted at the client's place of business, at our chapter headquarters, by telephone or via email.
SCORE mentors and representatives from the local business community conduct a variety of regularly scheduled, low-cost educational workshops that provide valuable information and techniques necessary for establishing and managing a successful business.
With access to a wide variety of documents, templates and tools to assist you in starting or growing your business, the information provided here covers a wide range of subjects including initial business planning, capital sources, government agencies, and much more.
