Mid-Columbia Tri-Cities SCORE has qualified as a platinum-level chapter after posting the third-largest turnaround in SCORE’s 50-year history last year, according to a release.
SCORE helped launch 10 businesses that employed 37 people throughout the past year. That significant growth spurred the designation bestowed upon the Mid-Columbia chapter by SCORE’s national office in Washington, D.C.
SCORE provides small business mentoring and workshops to more than 375,000 new and growing small businesses across the nation each year. More than 11,000 business experts volunteer as mentors across 320 local chapters.
