SCORE forms alliance partnerships with likeminded organizations that help small business owners. No dollars are exchanged, which distinguishes these partnerships from corporate partnerships and sponsorships managed by the SCORE Foundation.
Goal: build awareness for SCORE’s brands and services with new audiences.
