Welcome to the Northeast Massachusetts SCORE Chapter
The SCORE Northeast Massachusetts Chapter serves Essex, Northern Middlesex, and parts of Northern Suffolk counties. We offer a unique form of team counseling to provide our clients with a broad range of expertise and experience. Each session follows a proven methodology which make clients feel at ease, determines relevant problems, opportunities or questions and then leverages many years of successful business experience to craft a plan of action.
We have over 40 counselors in the Chapter who provide counseling in multiple branches, conveniently located close to our clients. The locations of the branches, the counseling schedule and the contact information to schedule a counseling session can be found on the "Our Locations" page.
