Free Mentoring Service

Get the guidance you need.

SCORE Chicago offers free business mentoring at a location close to you. SCORE volunteer mentors are successful current and former executives and business owners representing many skill areas and industries.

They can help you with questions like these:

  • How do I start a business?
  • Where can I obtain funding for my business?
  • How can I grow my existing business?
  • How can I manage my cash flow?
  • How can I use social media in my marketing efforts?


A SCORE mentor works with you one on one to help you with your business challenge and meets with you as often as necessary to achieve successful results. This varies by client, but your SCORE mentor is available every step of the way!

Free mentoring is available by appointment at one of our SCORE locations in Chicago and the suburbs.
