We are a group of working and retired business professionals dedicated to providing FREE mentoring to small businesses in the Pasco and Hernando counties of Florida.

SCORE Pasco-Hernando is dedicated to helping our small business owners and entrepreneurs succeed. We provide free, expert mentoring, counseling clients on the many facets of running a business.

We're not academics, nor have we just taken some training courses. We've actually lived it.

Connect With Us

Let us know how we can help! We continue to provide real-time mentoring by
video (ZOOM, Google Meet, etc.), e-mail and phone.

We also have a collection of helpful COVID19 resources at our SCORE Small Business Resilience Hub.
