The wealth of content available when starting or growing a business can be overwhelming, especially as you deal with so many areas of development from finance to marketing to legal and business formation issues.

With the above in mind, we’re pleased to offer the new and improved SCORE Minnesota Client Resource Guide (vers 7.0).

This simple to use, interactive PDF contains links to a wide range of terrific resources to nurture and develop your business.

The SCORE Minnesota Client Resource Guide can used by anyone looking to develop their business plan or improve their business development efforts. Specific areas include what it takes to start a business, business plan research and development, marketing, finance, and legal resources.

You'll find and easy and intuitive user interface that’s cross platform compatible whether you’re on a MAC, Windows, or mobile device.

A couple of items to make use of this tool a bit more intuitive:

First, while you’ll find your navigation experience to be optimized with the free Adobe Reader or Acrobat installed on your device, you no longer need this resource to access all the resources available – all content is now delivered via your web browser.

Second, be sure to take a moment and review the “Read Me” page (lower left hand corner of master page) this will give you a quick overview on how to navigate this PDF.

Finally, while there’s order to the content provided, there’s no path from step 1 to 2 to 3, etc… Think of this as a portal to the many libraries and resources where you can work on one topic or another that’s relevant to your efforts at any given time.

This guide isn’t designed to answer all your questions as you nurture your business, but a starting point with the core references available. Hopefully, your work with your SCORE mentor will fill in the rest of the blanks.

Your comments and suggestions on how we can improve the guide are welcome. Send these to: twincities@scorevolunteer.org
