SCORE Business Roundtables; An Overview

The SCORE Business Roundtable is a facilitated discussion event led by a SCORE volunteer(s) or an invited guest that is an expert in his/her field.

Usually a SCORE Business Roundtable is made up of a group of local business partners that have a strong and common interest in promoting entrepreneurship within their local area. 

The purpose of a business roundtable is to:

  • Engage local small businesses with a supportive peer group.
  • Share in the discussion, and learn from each other about current business issues.
  • Provide value through access to SCORE resources and services.
  • Help emerging firms overcome obstacles.
  • Help individuals learn about, and engage in starting their own business.
  • Long term, create more jobs in the community.

The benefits of belonging to and consistently attending a SCORE roundtable are:

  • Get peer feedback in a supportive environment.
  • Test your ideas with other entrepreneurs.  Learn from the successes and experiences of others.
  • Access the collective wisdom of the group.
  • Different discussion topics as selected by the group each week allows you to learn about current challenges. 
  • The open discussion format promotes interchange of ideas.
  • Connect with SCORE resources and services.
  • Opportunity to network with each other and develop closer relationships one-on-one.
