Most clients who come to SCORE, get their small business questions answered through our Workshops and Counseling. However, when appropriate, we suggest additional Federal, State and non-profit agencies who can help as well. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources for additional information and help, and to generally increase your small business knowledge.
We are fortunate that SCORE is a Resource Partner with most of these organizations in Delaware and we will give you a web site where you can obtain contact and other information on all of them in one place. In addition, the web sites of our national SCORE organization and our primary sponsor, the U.S. Small Business Administration, both offer much tutorial and other information to help the small business owner.
May we suggest that before you investigate these sites, that you bookmark SCORE Delaware website in your browser for easy return.
