SCORE has almost 100 volunteer members available to provide counseling, mentoring, and workshops to assist small businesses located in the area. The Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce is a location where SCORE appointments meet. Some of the SCORE counselors are retired and have extensive business experience, and others are currently working in their own businesses--all volunteer their time and expertise to assist small businesses in our area at no charge.
As part of the network of 13,000+ volunteers who offer small business entrepreneurs confidential business counseling services, SCORE volunteers have the knowledge and experience to help any small business owner get the help they need. Nationally, their dedicated volunteers represent over 3,000 years of experience across 62 industries.

SCORE is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and has been mentoring small business owners for more than forty years.
