Shortly after the financial crash of 2008, I came to SCORE at the suggestion of a friend who had tired of listening to me complain about business and finances.

SCORE advisors can give you help with anything you need to get your business up and running. The diversity, intellect, talent, experience, and depth of the Norwalk SCORE team is simply amazing. We deeply appreciate the guidance and help we get from SCORE. My counselor, Bob, is a kind, caring, and brilliant advisor, who generously shares his wisdom and practical advice when we need it most. Thank you SCORE!
