This is an online event. 




Have questions about your business?

Meet with a SCORE mentor before the "When banks say no, what do you do next?" webinar begins. Get clarity on what to do next.

Do you have some specific business and financing challenges on your mind 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 a knowledgeable SCORE mentor 

We have selected mentors who include business planning and funding in their expertise to work with you. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, pick ONE mentor and ONE time slot when you register.

Each mentor will offer only a limited number of fifteen minute-sessions from 2:00-3:45. If your first choice is no longer available, select another. Our mentors are very experienced and can help a wide range of businesses.

The number of sessions are very limited, please just sign up for ONE slot. Also, be 99% sure you will attend before you do so.  Don’t sign up “just in case” you think you can make it and prevent someone else from taking advantage of this opportunity. 

When you sign up, remember to write down the time you chose as a reminder.
