Join SBA and SCORE for a Meet-A-Mentor chat session Tuesday, January 30th between 9:00 am and 10:30 am

We've planned a coffee shop meet-up in Vancouver, where you can learn about SBA and connect with mentors to ask questions about how to grow your business. Or, if you are interested in starting a business, we can provide guidance on how to do that too. 

Mentors and SBA will be on hand to make introductions, learn about your business concerns, and provide free assistance.

This event will be a great occasion for small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs to meet with business advisers from SCORE Vancouver and to learn about SBA resources like the Emerging Leaders program.

A Mentor Can Be a Game Changer for Small Business

Come out to meet your local SCORE mentors and learn how you can use free business advising to start or grow your business! Research proves that small businesses that receive three or more hours of mentoring achieve higher revenues and increased business growth. Even better, according to a recent survey, 70 percent of small businesses that receive mentoring survive more than five years – double the survival rate of non-mentored businesses. Small businesses agree. The same survey found that 88 percent of business owners with a mentor say that having one is invaluable.
