Annually the National SCORE Office (NSO) in Herndon VA via a Client Engagement Survey conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) gathers valuable information form actual SCORE clients who choose to voluntarily participate and which over the last three years has been participated in by over 50,000 SCORE clients.  

As a part of that survey SCORE has finally been able to accumulate meaningful statistics by chapter and chapter mentors which shows the number of business and non-profits started and jobs created.

The data has not been extrapolated so no doubt it is a quite conservative number but accurate based on actual reported data from our clients.

Therefore, based on the conservative approach, Treasure Coast SCORE Chapter 308 is proud to have been recognized by NSO as having helped clients create 131 new businesses and created 1,429 new jobs over the last three years. Were the data to have been extrapolated the numbers would be considerably higher.

As the client list for the survey comes directly from the actual client list entered by mentors in our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) System, the information regarding clients and the associated mentors is the most accurate information that we have and directly reflects the information volunteers enter. The New Business Started and the Number of Jobs Created are reported exactly as clients reported these to us in our survey.

Our local SCORE mentors have direct experience in business start-ups, manufacturing, high technology, insurance, public relations, retail operations, textiles, pharmaceuticals, legal, banking, finance, tax, distribution, information technology, materials, engineering, sales & marketing, customer service, commercial leasing, electrical contracting, health & nutrition, human resources, specialty retailing, hospitality, acquisitions, turnarounds, divestitures, business valuations, public relations, turnarounds, promotional products, environmental and non-profits.

SCORE Chapter 308, with its main office in Ft. Pierce also offers counseling at 7 other locations on the Treasure Coast.
