Client Education:

Entrepreneurs benefit from a variety of regularly scheduled, low cost educational workshops. These provide valuable information and techniques for establishing and managing a successful business or a non-profit organization.

These workshops are offered geographically throughout the Piedmont Chapter which serves the Upstate of South Carolina. Both SCORE Mentors and representatives from the local business community, as well as our partners (eg; SBDC, technical colleges, Michelin Development, Chambers of Commerce, etc.) conduct these workshops.
