Arthur Slotkin, Georgia District Director of SCORE, announced this month the
establishment of a new branch in Valdosta, Georgia. SCORE is a not-for-profit organization composed of volunteers who provide free mentoring and free
or low cost training to entrepreneurs who wish to start or grow small businesses.
According to a recent press release, "the leadership of the new Valdosta branch is provided by Ms. Erica Hill who founded and ran the “Entrepreneurs of Valdosta,” a group composed of volunteers who engaged in many of the services that the SCORE Association provides." The new Valdosta branch will conduct a series of three training sessions in the fall of 2016 for local entrepreneurs focusing on business basics, business plan development, marketing, finances and sources of funding for small businesses. This program is called “Simple Steps to Starting Your Business.” The Simple Steps program will be offered at no cost and participation is being funded by the SCORE Association and the SCORE Foundation. Stay tuned as more information about this series is coming soon.
