Coaching One-on-One with SCORE



  • 50-minute appointments with John Edwards & Jerry Mar

    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.
