SCORE Treasure Valley, with about 45 volunteers, has been helping entrepreneurs and small business owners in the Treasure Valley (Boise, Nampa, Caldwell, and the surrounding area) since 1971.
We provide free consulting from several locations around the Treasure Valley, and also monthly workshops at our Parkcenter office in Boise.
The "Learn About Us" link below is for information regarding our national SCORE organization.
Treasure Valley SCORE has about 45 volunteers ready to offer a helping hand, at no charge, to entrepreneurs who want to start a small business or to those businesses that need an advisor to mentor their progress. Our Treasure Valley chapter schedules counseling sessions at various times of the week in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, and Caldwell.
Our SCORE volunteers provide a vast array of business experience. Many have been or continue to be owners of their own small businesses. Others have come from the corporate world and include engineers, CPAs, human resource managers, manufacturing managers, marketing and sales professionals. Last year we conducted over 800 face-to-face counseling sessions with clients. Come see us and let us help you get started.
Business Fundamentals Workshops
We host one-day business-fundamentals workshops, generally monthly on Saturdays, at our Parkcenter office in Boise. Watch this space for announcements about our next workshop.
In September, we'll be hosting a one-day workshop event at BSU. This will be our 3rd such event and usually involves presentation of 3 to 4 workshops by SCORE and other experts, as well as the opportunity for participants to combine workshop attendance with one-on-one mentoring from a SCORE mentor.
