Pinellas County SCORE Chapter Receives “Platinum” Rating

The Pinellas County Chapter of SCORE (formerly the Service Corps of Retired Executives) has received the highest rating issued by the National Organization, Platinum.  This is a direct reflection of the efforts of the 50+ local volunteers in the areas of volunteering, mentoring, presenting workshops, community involvement and following up with their SCORE clients helping them achieve their business goals.

In our business at Clarity Creative Media, we speak to a lot of individuals just starting their business.  We highly recommend that they utilize the tools and mentoring available through SCORE.  Why pay to learn what it takes to start a business or to learn from your previous business mistakes when you can learn from qualified Mentors for free?

Founded in 1964 SCORE is a nonprofit association headquartered in Herndon, VA. and is dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow and succeed nationwide.  They provide free confidential mentoring services and free or low-cost workshops on a broad variety of topics including writing a business plan, advertising and marketing strategies, negotiating leases, trademark registrations and navigating local government licensing and regulatory issues.

Nationally SCORE is a valuable network of 13,000+ volunteers who offer small business entrepreneurs confidential business mentoring services by industry veterans at no charge.  SCORE volunteer mentors have the knowledge and experience to help any small business owner get the help they need.  Their dedicated volunteers represent over 3,000 years of “hands on” experience across 62 industries.
