Connect with SCORE Central Virginia
SCORE is dedicated to helping Rural entrepreneurs achieve their business goals.
Rural small businesses dominate over businesses with 500 employees or more at 42% of the job share market within their population area. Small businesses in rural areas declined by 33% over ten years; the rural populations have also been on a downhill trend.
With SCORE resources and free mentoring services at your fingertips, we can help you overcome any business challenge along the way. We offer personal, expert mentorship to small business owners in rural communities and provide free business training, both in-person and virtually.
