Well, let me tell you a bit about SCORE...
SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) is a nationwide non-profit organization partnered with the U. S. Small Business Administration. SCORE's experienced executives provide free counseling to folks starting their own business and to existing business owners. The counselors are dedicated, trained volunteers who have experience in various industries such as retail, tech, and non-profit. SCORE also offers great low cost business workshops and seminars.
So, if you are thinking about starting or growing your business SCORE can help. Check them out they have an office in San José as well as throughout the Bay Area.
