SCORE Celebrates National Small Business Week, May 17-22

Posted May 8th, 2009 by Debbi Tischinae  Category: Business,


National Small Business Week, May 17-22, celebrates the tremendous importance of small businesses to the American economy, our local community here in Northwest Ohio, and our way of life.

Small business is vital to the success of our economy. There are more than 27.2 million small businesses in the United States, which employ about half of the country’s private sector workforce. The drive and determination of entrepreneurs helps ensure that the American spirit of initiative and equal opportunity flourishes.

For many Americans, small business ownership is the American dream. SCORE helps them achieve their dream of small business success. More than 11,200 SCORE experts offer free and confidential business mentoring and advice to small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs nationwide. More than 40 volunteers staff our local SCORE chapter here in NW Ohio.

During the month of May, our local SCORE chapter will honor the talents and achievements of the small business owners who are our clients, provide them with a forum to network and explore new opportunities for their businesses, and sponsor workshops in collaboration with Lourdes College and WBGU-PBS/Bowling Green State University

SCORE’s working and retired volunteers donate their expertise to help local entrepreneurs prepare business plans, develop business strategies and gather valuable information about doing business in local communities. All SCORE counseling is free and confidential.
