The Green Bay SCORE chapter has more than 30 dedicated current and former professionals and executives with real world experience that provide business guidance to entrepreneurs and existing small businesses. Our volunteers provide mentoring to clients in Brown, Manitowoc, Kewaunee, Oconto and Marinette counties.

Sessions are kept strictly confidential and there is no limit on the number of counseling sessions received. The best part is there is absolutely no charge, as all SCORE counselors are volunteers.

If you have questions on business planning, financing, marketing and more, SCORE counselors can be a tremendous resource to help take your business to the next level.
