The Norfolk SCORE Chapter 0160 wants to help you succeed.  In addition to free face-to-face counseling, we offer low cost workshops and seminars for both start-up and in-business entrepreneurs.  Workshops and seminars are open to all U.S. citizens over the age of 13.  Workshop presenters are practicing professionals including accountants, lawyers, bankers , and business managers from diverse businesses and industries.  Other facilitators are SCORE counselors who have years of industry and business experience.  Workshops also offer an opportunity to interact with other local small business owners.

Presented twice a year, our “How To” workshop runs one night a week for up to three weeks.  Training topics range from writing a business plan, to ecommerce, to marketing your business, depending on the current needs of our business community. Visit for more information.
