During 2011, American small businesses, new and old, helped the economy start to turn around and put people back to work with help from SCORE. With its powerful network of 13,993 volunteers, SCORE aided 272,032 entrepreneurs, comprised of 47.4% women, 46.3% minorities and 11.9% veterans, in achieving small business success in 2011. The work of SCORE mentors not only resulted in the creation of new businesses and jobs, but had a profound effect on the American economy – for every $1 appropriated to SCORE in 2011, its clients contributed an estimated $57 in federal taxes. The difference made by SCORE mentors to businesses of all kinds, at all stages is clear.
