About Susquehanna SCORE


The greater Susquehanna region has a long history of entrepreneurship and applied creativity, and Susquehanna SCORE takes that heritage seriously.  The Susquehanna, Pennsylvania Chapter of SCORE is part of a national nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of the nation’s small businesses.  SCORE volunteers share their expertise and serve as sounding boards “For the life of your business.”

Susquehanna SCORE has provided free and confidential business mentoring since 1979, tailored to meet the needs of emerging and growing businesses and small business owners’ personal objectives.   We see an average of 45 companies for individual mentoring from York and Adams Counties each month.  More than half of them return to SCORE multiple times as their businesses launch and they reach new milestones of growth and development.  We treasure those long-lasting relationships and celebrate when our clients are kind enough to cite their SCORE mentoring as a significant factor in their new levels of success.

In addition to our mentoring, Susquehanna SCORE also offers low- or no-cost workshops for both new and existing entrepreneurs in conjunction with a number of community partners, including:

•    Shippensburg University Small Business Development Center (SBDC)
•    Kutztown University Small Business Development Center (SMDC)
•    York College
•    Community First Fund
•    Buy Local Coalition
•    York County Economic Alliance (YCEA)
•    Small Business Administration (SBA)
•    Harrisburg Area Community College
•    York Builders' Association

Susquehanna SCORE volunteers are seasoned professionals, many of them actively involved in current ventures of their own, who donate thousands of hours to help small businesses succeed.  Our mentors are experts in such areas as accounting, finance, marketing (including social media), food-based businesses, engineering, manufacturing, management and business planning.  They undergo ongoing mentoring training and certification from the SCORE national association.
