Who We Are


SCORE Fox Cities is one of the most active SCORE chapters in Wisconsin. We have a team of 50+ active mentors that provide support and mentor clients on an on-going basis. Our mentors are knowledgeable, motivated, dedicated and committed to helping small businesses.

SCORE Fox Cities' chapter is located in Appleton with branches in Oshkosh and Fond du Lac. We represent 8 counties – Calumet, Green Lake, Fond du Lac, Marquette, Outagamie, Waupaca, Waushara, and Winnebago.

We offer workshops, seminars and webinars throughout the year. Our most popular workshop, Simple Steps to Starting a Business, includes Start-up Basics, Business Concept, Marketing Plans, Financial Projections and Funding Sources & Next steps for the client that is interested in understanding what it takes to be a business owner and writing a business plan.  We also offer a variety of current topic seminars such as market research and social media marketing.

Two of our volunteers host and manage our popular BIZTalk with SCORE radio show aired on WHBY on Saturday 9:00 A.M.  This program gives the public an opportunity to talk with experienced entrepreneurs as well as business legal, accounting, banking, insurance and computer service professionals.

At our monthly meeting, you will get to know our generous and interesting volunteers who want to give back to our community. Most of our volunteers provide one-on-one mentoring with our business clients.  Client meetings are scheduled by the mentor and client based on a mutually agreed time and can be face-to-face, phone or online, allowing our volunteers great flexibility in scheduling.  We also have volunteers who support functions in the day-to-day operations of the organization as well as specialists who can offer their limited time and resources to guide or advice our clients on an adhoc basis.  If you have a business background either by owning a business, working in business related education or a corporation and have skills and experience to help small businesses, SCORE is for you! 

Our vision: Mentoring businesses to success, one business at a time.
