Local SCORE Chapter receives Platinum Award

SCORE’s Ventura County Chapter was awarded 2020 Platinum Status, SCORE’s highest rating. The award recognizes the Ventura County Chapter for outstanding leadership, commitment and exemplary services in maintaining chapter standards of operation. This recognition is client centered and given to the top performing SCORE chapters out of 300 nationally.

SCORE Ventura County’s mission is to foster vibrant small business communities through mentoring and education. Founded in 1972, the chapter will soon celebrate its 50th Anniversary. The chapter’s volunteers provided confidential and free mentoring to 645 entrepreneurs during 2020. The chapter’s 61 workshops & webinars during the year reached 1,968 small business owners and attendees.

The chapter’s volunteers believe that building alliances and receiving support from the Small Business Administration, Ventura County’s Chambers of Commerce, the Economic Development Collaborative, the Women’s Economic Ventures and our many other community partners is making it possible for SCORE Ventura to grow and achieve its goal to give every person the support necessary to thrive as a small business owner.

SCORE was established in 1964 as a nationwide, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization to facilitate retired business owners and managers to mentor and assist small business owners. The organization’s 11,000 volunteers operate out of over 320 chapters through the country. The SBA includes SCORE, along with the Small Business Development Centers and Women’s Business Centers, in its triad of technical assistance partners offering mentoring and educational services.
