SCORE "Counselors to America's Small Business" is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow and succeed nationwide. SCORE is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
Founded in 1964, SCORE has 364 chapters throughout the United States, with 12,400 volunteers nationwide. Both working and retired executives and business owners donate time and expertise as business counselors. SCORE Counselors are located on-site at Arlington's BizLaunch offices to offer services to new Arlington entrepreneurs and small businesses.
Before booking an appointment, be sure to check out the BizLaunch Small Business Checklist, which answers many common questions, as well as County’s business directory and information on Business Licenses, Building Permits and Zoning.
We also recommend subscribing to our newsletters to learn about upcoming BizLaunch and Arlington Economic Development activities.
Due to the current health pandemic we need to change the way you request an appointment with a SCORE counselors. To request a virtual appointment with one of our counselors, go to the SCORE mentorship page and search for an Arlington counselor (or search based on the industry expertise you are looking for).
Please provide at least 48 hours notice if you are unable to keep your SCORE appointment.
