This National Black Business Month, SCORE, the nation's largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors is spotlighting resources to support America's Black entrepreneurs, and offering volunteer opportunities for experienced Black business owners.

Supporting Black-Owned Businesses

SCORE's original survey data from The Megaphone of Main Street: The Impact of Covid-19, Impact on Black-owned Small Businesses showed that Black-owned businesses face unique barriers to success. In particular, they were significantly more likely to seek – but less likely to receive – outside funding from both public and private sources.

In response to these unique challenges, SCORE offers a centralized educational hub called SCORE for Black Entrepreneurs that provides Black small business owners with access to personalized support and the resources they need to succeed, including:

  • Educational content specially designed to support Black entrepreneurs.
  • Live webinars and original online workshops.
  • Free, remote, expert business mentoring.
