Make Good Ideas Better 

Meet with a SCORE mentor before the "Achieving Goals In Uncertain Times" conference begins and get clarity on what to do next.

Do you have business challenges you’d like to discuss with an experienced SCORE mentor? If you have never worked with a SCORE NYC mentor, take this chance to find out just how much they can help you think through your options. 

We also welcome business owners who cannot attend the conference but want to try out a speed mentoring session. First come, first serve. Places will go fast.

Sign up for a free mentoring session with an expert SCORE mentor 

We have selected five of our best and most experienced mentors to work with you. If you would like to meet with one of them, pick ONE mentor and ONE time slot when you register. 

The mentors will offer fifteen minute-sessions from 2:00-4:00 before the start of the Achieving Goals conference. If your first choice is no longer available, select another mentor. They are equally experienced and can speak to a wide range of issues and businesses beyond their specific areas of expertise.

Basically, you can't go wrong with any of them. 

The number of sessions are very limited. Please be 99% sure you will attend before you sign up.  Don’t do it “just in case” and prevent someone else from taking advantage of this opportunity. When you sign up, be sure to write down the time you chose as a reminder.
