SCORE Minneapolis is a volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed.  SCORE business counselors are volunteers with experience in all areas of business management, and they have the knowledge and experience to help any small business owner get the help they need.

“Our libraries are a source for information and inspiration,” said Anoka County Commissioner Julie Braastad.  “As a county, helping businesses thrive and grow jobs is what we’re all about.”

Meet individually with a SCORE business counselor in a private and confidential setting to develop your business plan, discuss a new idea or tackle a business problem.  Sessions are offered on a first come, first served basis on the third Thursday of the month, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm, starting January 17th

The next session will be offered on Thursday, February 21st.  The counseling sessions will be held in a conference room at Rum River Library, located at 4201 6th Avenue in Anoka.  Counseling sessions are free, and walk-ins are welcome.
