Business opportunity, franchise, distributorship, licensee opportunity, home-based and other small business owners, this day is for and about you. Why? It’s because today is National Entrepreneurs’ Day, and November is National Entrepreneurship Month.
Proclaimed by the President, National Entrepreneurs’ Day “celebrates the hard work, ingenuity and courage of our thinkers, doers and makers.” It’s also a day for organizations like SCORE—mentors to America’s small businesses—to not only recognize the entrepreneurial clients they serve, but to highlight the work that they themselves do to support them.
“Nurturing the American entrepreneurial spirit is something that SCORE does every day and nationwide,” SCORE said in a statement yesterday. In fact, with the free mentoring and other services provided by SCORE, more than 40,500 new small businesses were started by America’s entrepreneurs in the last year alone, creating more than 67,000 jobs and saving another 5,600. Moreover, 77,732 SCORE clients have seen increased revenues in the past year, putting SCORE well on track to achieving its goal of growing one million small businesses by 2017.
With 12,000+ volunteers representing countless years of expertise across 340+ chapters across the country, SCORE’s mentoring services, webinars, workshops and other small business tools are oftentimes provided either free-of-charge or at very low cost to entrepreneurs with small businesses of all sizes and kinds.
