Little Rock SCORE is a resource partner of the Small Business Administration that provides free and confidential business counseling tailored to meet the needs of small business.

Starting on Tuesday, May 7, SCORE mentors will be available at the chamber every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. A small business or aspiring small business will be able to meet with a mentor in thirty-minute increments during the two-hour period.

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy,” said Jay Chesshir, President & CEO of the Little Rock Chamber. “Having SCORE mentors at our offices will not only aid small businesses, but will provide a starting point for aspiring start-ups. We are grateful to SCORE for this partnership and look forward to its success.”

“Little Rock SCORE’s ultimate goal is to help the Arkansas business community grow through the FREE counseling they provide and the education resources they have available,” said Tim Zimmerman, Chapter Chair of Little Rock SCORE. “Partnering with the LRRC will help SCORE reach out to more established small businesses and those considering starting a small business. Their network is vast, and it affords our volunteers the ability to meet and assist a multitude of entrepreneurs, which in turn allows us to provide guidance to help small businesses achieve success.”
