The SCORE Chapter in High Point is hosted by the High Point Chamber of Commerce and operates as a supported entity of the Small Business Administration.
Local SCORE chapters provide counseling to people who are contemplating opening a small business as well as current business owners who seek objective, confidential, and experienced assistance with ongoing business problems.
All coaching & counseling services are provided free of charge, and clients may return as many times as they need. High Point SCORE uses a team coaching approach, with sessions lasting approximately one hour and usually occurring during our office hours of 10 – 12 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays. All sessions will remain confidential.
For those seeking financial support in the form of loans or grants, please be aware that SCORE neither provides loans nor grants. For grants, we suggest you review the web site www.grants.gov. For a business loan, you will need to approach a bank with your business plan. The SBA is not a source of business loans. Their function is to secure loans made by individual banks. We can coach you on how to write an effective business plan.
If you are interested, please read the section on The Coaching and Counseling Process. Then print out the two appropriate forms from the Application Forms . Fill out these forms, then return them to the High Point SCORE office. When we receive your completed forms, we will call you to schedule a coaching/counseling session.
Thank you for your interest in SCORE. We look forward to being of assistance to you.
