Citrus County SCORE

Citrus County SCORE consists of over 25 Certified SCORE Mentors.  We are eager to provide FREE assistance to businesses in Citrus County, Florida.

Historically known as the Service Corps of Retired Executives, our chapter indeed consists mainly of senior managers with years of relevant, real-world experience. We're not academics or just taken some training courses; we've actually lived it.

Whether you are trying to start a small business, expand an existing small business, or buy/sell an on-going small business, we can provide free face to face mentoring and counseling regarding the many issues that you may find daunting.  Most often, we assist in the development of business plans for locally owned small businesses. As a Chapter of SCORE we can also draw instantly upon our nationwide pool of over 11,500 mentors for specialized help.


SCORE's mentors, comprised of active and retired business men and women, provide clients with free and confidential business counseling. Counseling can be conducted at the client's place of business, at our chapter headquarters, by telephone or via email

SCORE mentors and representatives from the local business community conduct a variety of regularly scheduled, low-cost educational workshops that provide valuable information and techniques necessary for establishing and managing a successful business.

With access to a wide variety of documents, templates and tools to assist you in starting or growing your business, the information provided here covers a wide range of subjects including initial business planning, capital sources, government agencies, and much more.
