Connect with a local SCORE mentor to get free advice for your small business. We have many local mentors familiar with the Northern Maine area and hundreds of email mentors nationally who've "been there, done that". We know what you are going through.

Whether you are a first time entrepreneur or a fourth generation business owner, looking to start up or finish up, we can listen to your business challenges, help you understand the problems, analyze opportunities and offer friendly support and business coaching.

Mentoring is free and confidential. Every SCORE Volunteer is Certified and governed by the SCORE Code of Ethics and Conduct. We counsel face-to-face by appointment, mentor by phone or SKYPE (by appointment). We also mentor by email, so your location can be anywhere, and your time can be anytime that works for you!
