Mentoring for small businesses and entrepreneurs

SCORE North Cook and Lake Counties logo

Small businesses and entrepreneurs in Mount Prospect can receive free guidance from an experienced business mentor. 

The Mount Prospect Public Library partners with SCORE, a non-profit organization that is supported by the Small Business Administration. SCORE offers free, confidential mentoring by volunteers who have experience in all aspects of business.  

Mount Prospect Public Library patrons can sign up online for a one-on-one virtual session with a SCORE volunteer. Mentors can advise small businesses on topics such as product development, marketing, franchising, operations, strategy, technology, and nonprofits to name a few. Virtual appointments are available through the SCORE website. 

Find more resources for businesses on the Business and Financial Resource Guide. For assistance in accessing any library resources for businesses, including sample business plans, legal guides, and demographic data, stop by the Research Desk at the library, or contact us to request a reference appointment.
