Learn from the experts

Entrepreneurs benefit from a variety of regularly scheduled, low or no-cost educational workshops. Piedmont SCORE has a Basic Start-up Workshop somewhere in the Upstate every month.

These workshops are offered geographically throughout the Piedmont Chapter which serves the Upstate of South Carolina. Both SCORE Mentors and representatives from the local business community, as well as our partners (eg; SBDC, technical colleges, Chambers of Commerce, etc.) conduct these workshops.
