Free Local Mentoring!

We have over 50 mentors in Greater Hartford and hundreds of email mentors nationally who've "been there, done that". We know what you are going through.

SCORE offers the largest network of volunteer business mentors providing free answers to your business questions. Some of our volunteers are still working or consulting, while others are retired from business, but still very interested in helping every small business reach its potential. Our experienced business mentors provide advice on every aspect of business and can help you sort through your business challenges so that you can make a well thought through business decision. You can BROWSE LOCAL MENTOR PROFILES to find your ideal expert or ASK A QUESTION and let us pair you with the right expert.

Whether you are a first time entrepreneur or a fourth generation business owner, looking to start up or finish up, we can listen to your business challenges, help you understand the problems, analyze opportunities and offer friendly support and business coaching.

Mentoring is free and confidential. Every SCORE® Volunteer is SCORE® Certified and governed by the SCORE® Code of Ethics and Conduct. We counsel face to face by appointment in more than 10 locations throughout the northern half of Connecticut. We mentor by phone or SKYPE (by appointment). We also mentor by email as well, so your location can be anywhere, and your time can be anytime that works for you!
