Offers programs to help start, build, and grow small businesses. Contact the Boise office at (208) 334-9004, extension 333; the Spokane office at (509) 353-2809, or visit the SBA’s website. An SBA or SCORE counselor can advise about market research. (They do not write business or marketing plans.)
SCORE counselors are retired executives and former business owners who volunteer their time to assist small businesses. SCORE offices are located in Boise, Idaho Falls, and Spokane. Businesses in north Idaho are served by the Spokane SCORE office. The national website is www.score.org. SCORE counselors assist with market research. Again, they will not write your plan for you.
