SCORE helps you succeed!
Check out one of our latest success stories.
Eleni Theodorou pursued her passion for writing while holding a corporate job. Her first children's book, Noko the Knight, opened up opportunities for her to talk about its anti-bullying themes with groups of children and adults. She now works as an anti-bullying educator in partnership with schools in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.  
How SCORE helped:
Theodorou worked with mentors Richard Kitaeff, George Ginsberg, and Larry Matte on myriad subjects including corporate sponsorship, networking, business plans, and website development. "Their wealth of knowledge, their encouragement, and their holding me accountable to get my 'homework' done has pushed me and my company to even greater success," she says.
