TREASURE VALLEY SCORE celebrates being a part of the local small business community for 50 years. Formed in April of 1971, the office was established as a volunteer organization and resource partner of the Small Business Administration (SBA) within the Idaho Regional SBA office. While the initial focus was on mentoring new businesses and providing information to help owners understand how to best organize their business for success, work has expanded to include group workshops and online webinars.
It is estimated that over the last 50 years, local volunteers have assisted more than 8,000 businesses and supported the formation and existence of more than 16,000 jobs. These services have been offered at no cost to business owners.
“Treasure Valley Score’s mission is to assist entrepreneurs,” says TREASURE VALLEY SCORE Chapter Chair Lyra Manning. “Each small business requires some assistance either at the start-up phase and/or as their business changes over time. We, along with the additional expertise of our national organization of Chapter members, help many businesses gain the footing needed to successfully establish and grow a small business. Our mentors assist these new businesses with HR matters, marketing, business management training, grants, developing business plans, and more.”
