Alaska SCORE

SCORE is a nationwide nonprofit organization dedicated to the formation, growth and success of small businesses.

How SCORE Can Help You?

SCORE is run by volunteers who have in-depth, practical experience running and managing businesses. They've been there and done that. Each has chosen to give back to their community to help others start and grow their businesses.

These volunteers are ready to help you personally, by counseling you at no cost. Alaska SCORE also provides high quality workshops on topics of importance to small business owners.
