Welcome to the Baton Rouge SCORE Chapter

SCORE Baton Rouge has been serving small business clients in the greater Baton Rouge area for over forty years.

Our nearly seventy experienced business men and women volunteer to offer their experience from all types of business to assist our clients in the areas of developing a business plan, financial forecasting, marketing and sales, advertising, human resources, franchise purchasing, buy-sell negotiations, funding, web page design, computer help, legal assistance, accounting basics, and more.

We encourage interested volunteers with business experience to consider serving the community with us as counselors and support staff. Our member meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month and include coffee and donuts and always a good speaker from local business or government offices to keep us informed.

Our counselors meet with clients in our offices in the Louisiana Technology Park at 7117 Florida Boulevard on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays mornings every week, and in our locations in Denham Springs, Dutchtown (Ascension Parish library), and Plaquemine on a periodic basis.
