Frisco Business Counseling At Frisco Chamber of Commerce Every Wednesday.
WHAT IS SCORE?
SCORE is a non-profit organization of successful business executives who volunteer their knowledge and experience to help others who want to succeed in their business.
There are almost 400 chapters of SCORE in the country, with a history of over 40 years of counseling America’s small businesses.
Any small business can meet with SCORE counselors to get help with starting a small business in Frisco TX. SCORE Counselors are also available to assist any existing business who wants to expand, or just need some business advice from another perspective.
WHAT SCORE DOES
SCORE provides FREE, confidential, one-hour counseling and mentoring sessions at the Frisco Chamber of Commerce office at 6843 Main Street. All clients may return for additional sessions at any time.
SCORE assists the client with preparing and reviewing a Business Plan that can document the information a client needs prior to applying for a loan, or looking for investors. We also give directions in registering a business and establishing a business structure.
SCORE also suggests methods to market the client’s product or service. This is one of the most important steps in starting and operating a successful business.
SCORE also offers FREE legal assistance in reviewing documents such as leases, franchise agreements, partnership agreements, or any other document. Potential SCORE clients owe it to themselves to avail themselves of the valuable services that SCORE offers.
Our SCORE counselors conduct these FREE sessions every Wednesday morning beginning at 9:00 AM at the Frisco Chamber of Commerce (6843 Main Street). Each session is one hour in length, and the last session each Wednesday begins at 11:00 AM. To make an appointment, please contact Roz Righetti between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. by calling the chamber office at (972) 335-9522.
