SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow, and achieve their goals through education and mentorship. Since 1964, SCORE volunteers have provided mentoring and training support to more than 9 million entrepreneurs and small business owners. SCORE is made up of a network of more than 13,000 volunteers in 348 chapters.
SCORE is America’s premier source of free and confidential small business mentoring and advice service. More than half a million entrepreneurs count on SCORE each year for help with fulfilling their dream of starting a small business, as well as helping existing enterprises grow and become more successful. SCORE’s goal is to grow one million successful small businesses by 2017.
- 40% of the businesses they serve annually are new business formations.
- 60% are established businesses with 2-5 employees.
The SCORE-Paychex partnership provides the unique opportunity to align two organizations with similar missions: to grow successful small businesses across America.
As a SCORE national partner, Paychex provides Paychex-branded educational content with a focus on human resources topics. SCORE hosts this content on its Human Resources Center of Excellence, which gets over 400,000 visitors every month, many of which are entrepreneurs seeking useful information about how to run a business.
In specified regions, Paychex Sales and Operations works directly with SCORE mentors to educate small business owners on topics related to running a successful business.
