All appointments have been assigned. Check the calendar in a few weeks for a SCORE session in November.
On a monthly basis, SCORE (Service Corp for Retired Executives) sends two or four of their counselors with experience in the high tech industry to the SDForum Center. SCORE's experienced business experts provide general business advice on everything from how to write a business plan, to cash flow management, to developing a small business advisory board. Assistance for aspiring entrepreneurs may involve investigating the market potential for a product or service and assessing the capital needs to start a business. Counselors can provide insight into how to start a business, operate a business, buy a business or franchise and sell a business.
Tom worked 27 years for large corporations and also founded, obtained financing and operated his own small company for 13 years. This company evolved into one of the first three computer retailers here in Silicon Valley. He spent 20 years with GE as well as seven years with Fairchild and Fujitsu. His experience is concentrated in Sales, Marketing and General Management. He has a broad understanding of direct, distribution and retail sales.
John has more than 20 years experience in the semiconductor industry at companies such as Intel, International Microelectronic Products, and Bell Telephone Laboratories. He is accomplished in basic research, technology development, device modeling, process & product development, design engineering, manufacturing, quality & reliability, and profit & loss management.
