Chamber to host small business mentoring

In these tough economic times it is smart for business owners to arm themselves with as much information about business operations as they can and the Rockford Chamber of Commerce (RCC) wants to help.

The RCC has partnered with SCORE, a nonprofit organization and a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration, to bring helpful business information to the Rockford area. The SCORE organization is dedicated to helping the small business community through no-fee face-to-face business mentoring.

Whether you are starting a new business or have questions about your existing business, the SCORE business counselor will be able to help you find the answers. A SCORE counselor will be at the Rockford Chamber of Commerce, 598 Byrne Industrial Drive, Rockford, starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, November 3 for one-hour sessions.

To take advantage of this free business mentoring, please call the Rockford Chamber of Commerce at (616) 866-2000, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday to schedule an appointment.

SCORE business counseling is a great way to help your small business succeed.
