SCORE is proud to launch their new website, just in time for National Small Business Week (happening now!) Last week Shashi Bellamkonda attended the launch event in Washington, D.C. – you can check out his Flickr stream for more pictures.
Our friends at SCORE shared the following information with us:
“We’ve all heard the news; America’s economy is in dire need of stimulation and job creation. Small businesses in America are an integral part of the solution. Supporting and nurturing small businesses is what SCORE has been doing since 1964. Now we ask that you help us spread the word by blogging, tweeting, posting, and talking about growing America’s economy through the power, longevity and celebration of our nations’ small businesses!
In addition to co-sponsoring this event recognizing the contributions of small businesses to the economic well-being of America, SCORE is proud to name its 2011 National Chapter of the Year, SCORE East Central Iowa. SCORE East Central Iowa has earned the prestigious Chapter of the Year award due to their excellent client satisfaction, exceptional growth in serving entrepreneurs, and successful community outreach.
SCORE East Central Iowa is also responsible for their creation of the “Business Long Term Recovery Program (BLTR)”; a new national model for Disaster Recovery and Revitalization. This program provides face-to-face, hands on assistance to the hundreds of small businesses affected by the disastrous floods that struck their region in 2008.
During National Small Business week, SCORE has also teamed up with AT&T to present “Growing Your Business While on the Go – a Road Warrior’s Perspective.” Bill Rancic, a successful entrepreneur, nationally known speaker, and first-season winner of Donald Trump’s “Apprentice” TV show, will kick off the workshop with a presentation about keeping your business going and growing while on the go. Following Bill’s presentation, he will participate in a panel discussion on the same topic with small business experts from AT&T and SCORE.
Help us to celebrate the accomplishments of thousands of small businesses across the country and honor our 2011 National SCORE Chapter of the Year, East Central Iowa SCORE this Thursday 5/19 during National Small Business Week in DC.”
