Special San Diego Small Business Programs

CEO Forums

San Diego SCORE’s Forum programs provide business owners a structured environment to meet with other like entrepreneurs to share approaches on business challenges. In each Forum, about 12 business owners from non-competing companies use peer review to provide support and discuss a mix of operational and leadership issues.  SCORE San Diego mentors facilitate the monthly, half day sessions by offering guidance on problem solving and skills development for a low monthly fee.

SCORE Advisory Board

We assemble your Advisory Board based on your business goals, both long and short term. Your team will include a panel of experienced business people, representing different areas of specialization – such as finance, operations, marketing, etc. depending on your needs. They’ll work with you to review your current business situation, identify opportunities for business growth, act as a trustworthy sounding board, and suggest solutions to any issues or roadblocks you may be facing. As always with SCORE, any information you share about your company (products, finances, etc.) will be held in strict confidentiality. Most importantly, they’ll help hold you accountable for taking action in the areas that matter most to you in the long term.
