Dayton SCORE Supports Small Businesses in the GEM City

Dayton SCORE leads the challenge of putting the "Gem" back into the "Gem City" one business at a time. Dayton businesses, area educators, government officials, business development agencies and support groups such as SCORE must work together to save jobs, create jobs and drive the local economy. Small and medium businesses have traditionally created more jobs, generated more income, and had the greatest economic impact on the American and Dayton landscape throughout the years. Poised to do it again, they just need vision, confidence, motivation and leadership.

50th Anniversary of SCORE

2014 marks the 50th Anniversary of volunteers that have given their time, expertise and enthusiasm to help over 10 MILLION small businesses succeed.

SCORE as a whole –a strong network of over 10,000 volunteers in 340 chapters throughout the country– has had a profound impact on the state of small business in America throughout the last 50 years. 

Dayton SCORE was establish in 1965 and has more than 60 volunteers servicing both the profit and non-profit businesses.  The Dayton SCORE Chapter partners with communities  within our 11 county area.

In additional we partnership with the SBA. SBDCs, and community and state agencies  as part of an ongoing relationship to improve support for our clients. The Chapter serves as a resources to programs such as local chambers of commerce, Better Business Bureau, local libraries, high schools, and institutions of higher learning

Dayton SCORE Could Not Help the Dayton Dragons Win

During the 2014 Dayton SCORE Chapter outing to the Dragon’s game, South Bend pitcher Blayne Weller fired the sixth no-hitter in franchise history as the Silver Hawks defeated the Dragons 7-1 on Thursday night at Fifth Third Field. A crowd of 9,493 attended the game including several SCORE volunteers and clients. The game was also available to a national television audience on the CBS Sports Network.  CLICK HERE to read about the Dragon’s play-by-play action and see photos of the Dayton SCORE counselors and clients.

Dayton DragonBusiness today is a lot like baseball in that challenges are thrown at you fast and furious, and you often only have a couple of seconds to decide whether to swing or not.

Dayton SCORE counselors can help coach your business team and its players to respond to today’s fast paced business environment and emerge a winner by meeting your business goals and objectives. We could not help the Dragons on this night although we tried with beer, fun, food and cheers, but we can help you and your business win through proven business solutions, models, processes and people.


Dayton SCORE August Luncheon


At the Dayton SCORE August chapter meeting, Robert Talty introduced our guest speaker Kim Vogelgesang, Manager, Corporate Communications at Duke Energy, and also recognized Briana Snyder, the winner of the Dayton “Shark Tank” competition.

Kim Vogelgesang from Duke Energy provided the Dayton Chapter members a very interesting money saving tip for small businesses.  Her presentation showed the difference in electric utility charges among the various electricity providers in the area.  She showed that some companies can save as much as 30% on the energy distribution portion of their electric bills by signing up for an alternate provider. These savings were demonstrated by her using the “My Energy Choice Supplier Comparison Tool”   The use of an alternate provider can be a significant savings for a small business.  Her presentation generated lots of questions and interest from the SCORE chapter members. 

Briana Snyder from Confetti Card & Party was recognized as the winner of the "Open Dayton" business competition, a contest crafted by UpDayton to be similar to ABC’s entrepreneurship show "Shark Tank”.  Dayton SCORE participated in this event by providing each contestant a condensed version of the Dayton SCORE “Simple Steps” workshops series.  The Shark Tank competition resulted in several of the top contenders, in addition to Briana, receiving business loans from Day Air Credit Union

A Successful Non-Profit Workshop Season

The 2014 Spring series of Dayton SCORE workshops for non-profit organizations chalked up another successful run with 190 workshop participants attending the five workshops.  These workshops included: Strategic Planning, Board Development, Financial Management, Fundraising, and Marketing.  In total, there were 76 different non-profit organizations that attended at least one of the workshops. 

Survey forms collected from attendees were extremely positive and  appreciative of the content.   They also placed high value on the opportunity to network with attendees from other non-profit organizations and have informal discussions with Dayton  SCORE mentors.
        
The continuing popularity of these workshops has led the Non-Profit Committee to the decision to offer the same workshops again in a 2014 Fall series.  Check the Dayton website non-profit workshop page for more information.
