SCORE Awarded Grant to Host Bridging Borders for Business Success Event

The Greater Omaha SCORE (omaha.score.orghas received a $5,000 grant from SCORE National to hold a multi-cultural event, “Bridging Borders for Business Success.”   This event will bring minority businesses, small business owners and those thinking about starting a business together with organizations that can help them start-up, develop and grow their businesses and to build relationships within the business community.   The Bridging Borders for Business Success event is free and is scheduled for August 24th, from noon to 5:00 p.m. at the UNO Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center.

The event includes a free lunch, speakers, educational sessions, an opportunity to talk with the supporting organizations, and a Spanish interpreter will be provided.

SCORE has been helping start-ups and small businesses be successful for 50 years through free counseling, mentoring and education.  Counseling includes everything from “Should I start my own business or purchase a franchise?” to “Do I need a business plan?”, “What do I do about taxes?” and more.  SCORE connects entrepreneurs with mentors to help them with business advice from proven professionals.  SCORE provides no- or low-cost business training and education online and in our community.

Gallup shows that 71% of SCORE’s clients go into business after mentoring and 91% of SCORE clients are still in business.
