SCORE “Counselors to America’s Small Business” announces a fresh, new design for the SCORE Web Site, www.score.org. Visitors can quickly access SCORE’s online counseling system or enter their ZIP code to locate the nearest SCORE office for face-to-face mentoring and workshops. Those in the Chicago area can reach us directly at www.scorechicago.org.
In addition, the main section of the home page has been divided into three key areas:
# Highlights provides important articles, resources and news to help aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners start and grow their business to success. Recent content includes: dealing with an economic downturn; taking advantage of Web 2.0; getting a business loan; and growing your sales.
# Upcoming Events feature national seminars and conferences that offer valuable business education and networking opportunities. Find out how to attend SCORE and HP Business Matchmaking or Disaster Preparedness Workshops.
# Featured Content organizes information by subject, such as Starting, Growing and Managing a business, and by community, including Women, Minority and Young Entrepreneurs.
