NEBA has partnered with SCORE since 2009. From the inception of its business plan program NEBA has used the SCORE business plan template located on the SCORE website. The use of the SCORE template has assured all participants are consistent in both the type and quality of information included in the completed business plan.

In 2010 a formal business plan review was started. This review assures the completed plan is consistent with current standards and expectations of regional lenders. The second purpose of the review is to obtain a SCORE mentor for the new entrepreneur. Study after study has shown that a business has a greater rate of success with a mentor as compared to new businesses that do not have a mentor.

NEBA went national with its business plan development support program in 2014. The NEBA-SCORE relationship is still a basic cornerstone of the business plan development program. Individuals in the national program and completing a business plan are referred to their local SCORE office to obtain a business plan review and a Mentor.

The SCORE partnership has been a factor in the success rate of NEBA’s self employment program. Thank you, SCORE.
