Our Mission

The mission of the Charleston SCORE Chapter is to provide professional counseling and mentoring to entrepreneurs. Our members are volunteers with knowledge, expertise and a strong desire to see each client succeed.  Many of our volunteer members are still operating their own businesses. Member backgrounds include retail, manufacturing, distribution, finance, human resources, insurance, transportation, legal, engineering, and marketing, all representing many different industries.  Our Charleston Chapter mentors over 600 new clients each year. Of these, many launch a business each year. SCORE maintains a long term relationship with a business client to support their continuing success. 

Some of the notable successes on both the for-profit and non-profit spectrum we have helped start up over the last 35 years are as diverse as the background of our mentors.

Looking to start a business or are already in business and need help to take it to the next level?  We are confident we can help.
