The Minnesota District includes 6 Chapters (offices) staffed by experienced business people who volunteer their time to provide business support to small business owners.

SCORE provides free and confidential business counseling tailored to meet the needs of your small business and your personal objectives. SCORE also offers workshops both online and in person, for a modest fee, for both start-up entrepreneurs and in-business small business owners.

I would like to emphasize that SCORE assists people in starting a new business, buying or selling a business, and by providing support to existing small business owners.
