Our members are former executives of major companies or former owners of small businesses.  We understand your problems and provide free and confidential business counseling.  SCORE’s experienced business experts provide general advice on everything from how to write a business plan to cash management and sales promotion.

Counselors can provide insight into how to start a business, how to correct weak areas in an existing business or how to buy or sell a business.  We also offer workshops of interest to small business owners designed to aid them in the profitable operation of their businesses.

We help small businesses in the City of Wilmington and New Hanover, Brunswick, Duplin, Columbus, Bladen, Pender and Sampson counties in Eastern North Carolina.
