The City of West Covina is partnering with SCORE, a nonprofit association that provides free and confidential business advice, to help start, grow, and maintain businesses throughout the city. West Covina is excited to bring this resource to our local business community. SCORE offers business mentoring, resources, workshops, online workshops, and much more to help businesses grow and succeed.
Partially funded by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), SCORE has over 300 chapters with thousands of volunteer business counselors across the country to provide services such as business advice on every aspect of business planning, start-up, management and growth. Other services include workshops and seminars on topics that are customized to the needs of the local business community.
As a result of the City proactive efforts to partner with SCORE, the partnership has allowed SCORE to start an East San Gabriel Valley SCORE chapter.
Please visit the East San Garbiel Valley SCORE Chapter website to schedule a one-on-on mentoring session, get additional information on services offered, or for upcoming workshops/seminars. In addition to see available webinars available through the East San Gabriel Valley chapter please go to their webpage for Take a Workshop.
