SCORE is dedicated to helping AANHPI entrepreneurs achieve their business goals.

Despite these achievements, AANHPI entrepreneurs face racial discrimination and harassment that challenges their success and interferes with hiring employees, attracting customers, and accessing financing. AANHPI women business owners are particularly affected.

"I reached out to SCORE for mentoring, and it was an incredibly valuable experience."

"Volunteering at SCORE was my way of paying it forward. But I was pleasantly surprised. As a SCORE Mentor and Subject Matter Expert, I've learned so much from my fellow volunteers, its business clientele, and the wealth of resources offered. Simply said, SCORE's business model really works. If you can be a SCORE volunteer or client, don't miss out. Either way, you'll learn a lot!!"
