For the 4th year in a row, the SCORE Association has awarded SCORE Portland Maine the 2015 Platinum Leadership Award, the highest recognition possible for any local chapter.

“PwC conducts an annual survey of client engagement. SCORE Portland ranked #5 in the U.S. in client engagement satisfaction.”

SCORE Portland Chair Nancy Strojny said the Chapter provided more than 2730 services to Greater Portland small business owners and entrepreneurs last year. In addition to offering free business workshops on a wide range of topics, SCORE Portland's Certified mentors provide free face-to-face mentoring sessions, as well as virtual sessions with clients.

“The Platinum Leadership Award is a testament not only to the quantity of work SCORE Portland has done, but more importantly to the quality of our work as reported by our clients,” Strojny said.

“Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) conducts an annual survey of SCORE client engagement.  SCORE Portland ranked #5 in the U.S. in client engagement satisfaction.”

SCORE is the largest mentor network in Maine. Portland Certified Mentors are a team of 62 active volunteers who are current and former entrepreneurs, business owners, corporate executives and professionals.

“We work hard to provide business owners and startups with support that allows their business ventures to thrive,” said Strojny.
