Lehigh Valley SCORE Chapter

The Lehigh Valley Chapter of SCORE was founded in 1965 as Chapter 74 of the Small Business Administration (SBA) national SCORE Organization. We are an active chapter with more than 30 volunteers. Our dedicated mentors volunteer their experience and knowledge to help small business owners and potential small business owners to succeed in their mission.

SCORE, "For the Life of Your Business" is dedicated to entrepreneurial mentoring and education on the formation, growth and success of small businesses. We also support and counsel nonprofit organizations.

We provide free and confidential business mentoring tailored to your business needs and personal objectives. Lehigh Valley SCORE also offers workshops for start-up entrepreneurs, small business owners, and nonprofit organizations.

Client service is our main objective, whether it is in person, by phone, or on-line. SCORE mentors provide you with in-depth, industry-specific business assistance to help evaluate a business idea or plan, stimulate business growth and ensure long-term success. We serve entrepreneurs across Lehigh, Northampton and Carbon Counties.

Lehigh Valley SCORE’s office is located at Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) in the Academic Resource Center (ARC) building, Room 100. We are opening mentoring locations in Allentown and Bethlehem and often arrange to meet clients throughout the area.
