We’re thrilled to announce that we recently entered into a partnership with the North Metro Atlanta chapter of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives), a national non-profit and partner organization of the US Small Business Administration that focuses on providing mentorship and resources to established and aspiring business owners.

The North Metro Atlanta chapter covers all of Cobb, Gwinnett, North Fulton, and Forsyth counties and will now be able to service Roswell area business owners and professionals.

“Our partnership with SCORE is a natural fit for the entrepreneurial spirit of Roswell businesses,” said Steve Stroud, Executive Director of Roswell Inc. “We look forward to working with SCORE to mentor, train, and educate new and existing businesses to expand within the City of Roswell.”

“Our North Metro Atlanta Chapter, with its 15 offices and 62 Mentors, is uniquely equipped to help people start or grow their businesses through one-on-one mentoring, workshops and webinars,” said Bill Foust, of SCORE. “We are Roswell based and focused, and we look forward to serving the needs of Roswell’s future and existing businesses”.   

The partnership will allow Roswell-based SCORE mentors to hold weekly one-on-one mentoring sessions at Roswell Inc . The North Metro Atlanta SCORE chapter will also work with Roswell Inc to host business-focused workshops on a quarterly basis. The two organizations are in the beginning stages of planning these workshops that will be open to businesses across Roswell and the North Metro area.
