Welcome to the Reading, PA Chapter of SCORE, Serving Berks and Schuylkill Counties

The Reading, PA Chapter  is part of SCORE "Counselors to America's Small Business," a national nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of the nation's small businesses.

The Reading, PA  Chapter provides free and confidential business advice and counseling tailored to meet the needs of your small business and your personal objectives. We also offer workshops, in conjunction with Reading Area Community College, for a modest fee, for both start-up and in-business entrepreneurs.

Sometimes a home business owner asks us what the best MLM companies are to join. We don't recommend one, as we're focused on workshops an start-up business entrepreneurs.

SCORE volunteers are real-world professionals with time-tested knowledge who donate thousands of hours to help small businesses succeed. Counselors are experts in such areas as accounting, finance, marketing, management and business plan preparation. We have assisted many clients in obtaining business loans.

Contact or call 610-376-3497 to learn more about our services. We look forward to serving you.
