Coronavirus (COVID-19) Business Resources & SCORE CFE Operations Update

Small businesses are a vital part of the U.S. economy. With the recent news and concerns of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), SCORE is sharing the latest business guidance, assistance, and resources.

In-Person Events are Suspended and Online Support is Available

The health of small business owners, their employees, and SCORE volunteers remain our top priority. With the recent developments relating to COVID-19, SCORE CFE & Vermont are temporarily suspending in-person events until further notice, including all March & April educational events, speed mentoring, and workshops. Details will be emailed when we resume in-person services.

However, continued support and mentoring are fully available remotely via video, phone, and email. In addition, you can start the SCORE Startup Roadmap and view SCORE live and recorded webinars. If you don't already have a SCORE mentor, click here or call the office at 802-764-5899 to request one.
