As you may know, the Real-Time Mentoring (RTM) platform was launched in April during the coronavirus crisis and has been available to clients ever since. Through Real-Time Mentoring, SCORE has helped more than 6,500 business owners navigate through this confusing time, with the generous and expert support of our volunteer mentors. As challenging as this period was for everyone, it was a proud moment when SCORE stepped up in this new way to help small businesses during this unprecedented period.
SCORE has kept the Real-Time Mentoring services in place through the summer as businesses continue to navigate through reopening, redefining their business, and seeking stability. However, with time, there have been fewer and fewer business owners visiting Real-Time Mentoring for advice and support. To that end, effective on September 30, 2020, we will be shutting down the Real-Time Mentoring platform.
We’d like to extend a sincere thank you to all the mentors who participated in the Real-Time Mentoring platform. You have truly made a difference to many small business owners when they needed it the most.
