Launch and grow your business with help from SCORE

Are you looking for new ideas to grow your business? Or do you have a great idea and want guidance on how to turn that into a business? Volunteers from the Greater Rochester Chapter of SCORE can help. The volunteers are local business owners and executives who act as mentors and workshop presenters. We will kick off the event with an informational session about SCORE: the wide range of services offered to business owners and entrepreneurs, and how you can share your business expertise as a volunteer with SCORE. From there, we will offer breakout sessions that each last 15 minutes, so you’ll have the opportunity to attend three. Breakout sessions will focus on the following: writing a business plan (Steve Nicosia, advisor/consultant/investor); obtaining a Small Business Administration-backed bank loan (Virginia Smith, SBA branch manager); effective use of social media (Tamara MacDuff, Web Moxie Media); selling products online (Angella Luyk, One Stop Janitorial and Office Supply); marketing your business (George Kittredge,  marketing executive); and blogging to grow your business (Jane Sutter, Sutter Communications). A special thank you to the breakout session leaders!
