Do you have a small business interested in greater sales and profits? Is your New Year’s Resolution to start a business? They are many resources here in the Coachella Valley that want to help you.

To meet with all of us under one roof, come to SCORE’s 50th Anniversary Breakfast and Expo on Thursday, January 23rd. The event runs from 7am to 11:30am and is being held at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort. Cost of breakfast and attendance is only $10.00 or $20.00 at the door.

The keynote speaker for the EXPO is Congressman Dr. Raul Ruiz of the U.S. House of Representatives.
At the event, you will have a chance to meet with the finest organizations that can help you and your business. The hosting organization for the EXPO, SCORE, has a team of forty volunteers who assist in the mentoring of local businesses.

If you visit the ShareKitchen booth, you can find out how we can help you in starting or improving your food business via our team of industry professionals. Additionally, we have loans for up to $5,000 to help you with your business.


Others in attendance include Coachella Valley Women’s Business Center (they are not just for women). CVWBC helps all businesses existing or proposed in building business plans and the knowledge bases necessary to achieve success.

Coachella Valley Economic Partnership will be there as well. While CVEPs focus is on green businesses such as solar or renewable energies and large employment opportunities, CVEP collaborates with schools and groups like CVWBC, ShareKitchen and SCORE in achieving their mission of more jobs and a more highly trained worker base in the Valley.

We hope to see you on January 23rd. Go to for more information and to buy your ticket.
