Free Confidential Business Mentoring & Education
SCORE Fox Valley is an all-volunteer, non-profit group of local active and retired businessmen and women interested in helping you live your dreams -- to help you start up a business or to make your existing small business more successful.
The SCORE Fox Valley Chapter has counseling offices throughout the western suburbs of Chicago, covering the 8 counties of DuPage, DeKalb, Kane, Will, Kendall, McHenry, Boone and Winnebago.
SCORE local volunteers are business owners, marketing and sales professionals, retired corporate executives, recent college graduates starting their business, and consultants. SCORE national volunteers, over ten thousand strong, have specific skills that can be used to put the business in the market it should be in. We are accessible anywhere, online using Zoom. Someone with SCORE has been there, done that.
Our workshops connect small business owners with the people and information they need to start, grow and maintain their businesses, as well as online workshops available 24/7. We provide resources, templates, and tools to assist entrepreneurs in developing the plans they need to succeed.
