SCORE is all about helping small businesses succeed by offering former business counselors to aid in the review of their business plan, stimulate business growth and ensure long-term stability. The counselors we spoke to before opening were extremely helpful, to assist us set out on our path to starting Solus Lighting LTD. Everything from helping us to accurately project cash flow, to helping us streamline our business plan, to helping us understand what the banks we were going to talk with was expecting from us - SCORE was there every step of the way. The repetitive and key word in that last statement... helping. It's what SCORE does, and it is what they do well.
When it came time for the Cleveland chapter of SCORE to hold it's annual awards luncheon, they called us to help them. They called us & asked if our Co-Owner and Lead Designer, Maureen E Patterson, would be their keynote speaker. We were more than happy to be able to return the favor of help for them. We have pulled some clips from Maureen's speech that reflex how SCORE helped us launch & since then grow.
