Coronavirus Resources

Small business owners are resilient and can power through this challenging time, with SCORE Colorado Springs by their side. The success of your small business is important to us. We have compiled the latest business guidance, assistance, and resources to help your small business adapt and succeed.

In-Person Events Are Suspended; Online Support Is Available

Our downtown office is temporarily closed, but you can contact us for more information.  Visit Facebook and LinkedIn for continuing updates.

The health of small business owners, their employees, and our network of volunteers is our top priority. Effective immediately, all SCORE chapters across the country have suspended in-person events, including mentoring sessions and workshops, until further notice.

SCORE Colorado Springs is committed to providing you the best service we can during this time. We will update you when in-person events resume, and when new resources and guidance become available.

Remote Mentoring

Until personal contact is safe from the risk of contracting Covid-19 we are unable to offer face-to-face mentoring, but we are continuing individual and group mentoring by phone, email, or video conferencing using Zoom.
