SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow, and achieve their goals. SCORE SC Lowcountry offers free and confidential business mentoring, along with education and business resources to help you start or grow a business.

Our SCORE mentors are real-world business professionals, with time-tested knowledge. They are ready to work with you on a wide range of business issues. We offer face-to-face mentoring from our offices in Hilton Head, Bluffton, and Beaufort. In addition, we can meet with you via a video conference. Because our work is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and thanks to our network of  volunteers, we are able to deliver our mentoring services at no cost. Our workshops may have a small fee, to cover expenses.

SCORE also works with non-profit organizations. We have several local SCORE mentors with experience running non-profit organizations

Founded in 1964, SCORE has 364 chapters throughout the United States, with over 13,000 volunteers nationwide. We have been mentoring small business owners for more than fifty years. SCORE also offers business education through local workshops, online seminars, and events for small business owners. Our online seminars are recorded and available 24/7. In addition, SCORE provides business resources, templates, and tools to assist entrepreneurs in managing their business.
