SCORE is a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration. SCORE is manned by a staff of retired executives and former small business owners who volunteer their time and talents to assist Delaware area entrepreneurs in starting a business or expanding their business through one-on-one counseling and business development workshops.

  • Often we can answer your questions in a single session; however, we will work with you as long as we can help!
