About Us

SCORE is a nationwide volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to giving good, free, confidential advice to small business people. SCORE is affiliated with the United States Small Business Administration, an agency of the federal government.

The SCORE Northeast Massachusetts Chapter serves Essex, Northern Middlesex, and parts of Northern Suffolk counties. We offer free and confidential counseling and mentoring to those who wish to start or build existing businesses in the Northeast section of Massachusetts.  You can ask a single question or team with our counselors for long-term solutions. 

We offer a unique form of team counseling to provide our clients with a broad range of expertise and experience. Each counseling session follows a proven methodology which make clients feel at ease, determines relevant problems, opportunities or questions and then leverages many years of successful business experience to craft a plan of action.
