National Hispanic Heritage Month


From Sept 15 - Oct 15, is a time to celebrate and appreciate Hispanic-owned businesses across the nation. Hispanic-owned small businesses have grown 34% over the last 10 years – and show no signs of slowing down. Even with the growth and accelerating impact, Hispanic business owners face very real challenges.

SCORE is committed to helping all entrepreneurs succeed.
