South Alabama SCORE

South Alabama SCORE is part of SCORE "Counselors to America's Small Business," a national nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of the nation's small businesses.

South Alabama SCORE provides free and confidential business advice and counseling tailored to meet the needs of your small business and your personal objectives. Whether you are thinking of starting your small business or you are already in business, we can help.

From time to time South Alabama SCORE also offers workshops, for a modest fee, for both start-up and in-business entrepreneurs. SCORE volunteers are real-world professionals with time-tested knowledge who donate thousands of hours to help small businesses succeed. Counselors are experts in such areas as accounting, finance, marketing, management and business plan preparation. We have assisted many clients in obtaining business loans.
