Palm Beach SCORE: AUGUST 2015 – A Message From Our Chapter Chair
I’m pleased to announce that Palm Beach SCORE is launching a new live radio broadcast on September 2, 2015. It will be about our county’s robust small business community, called “SCORE-ing Your Business.” The program will air every Wednesday from 5 to 6 pm on Talk of the Palm Beaches, 900 AM.
Host Penny Pompei will welcome various business experts as guests, along with successful small business owners who will share what they have learned about entrepreneurship. The live show will include time for listeners to call in to ask questions and seek advice from our guests.
For the premier show on September 2 we will welcome a business development expert from Florida Power & Light. Future guests include representatives from Palm Beach Partners, FAU’s Tech Runway, CareerSource, various local Chambers of Commerce, the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, Paragon Florida, local area bankers, Score clients and Score mentors.
We know you’re want to tune in for your prime drive-time listening on 900 AM. If you happen to miss a broadcast, don’t worry – we’ll provide podcasts on our website at(www.palmbeach.score.org) so you’ll be able to listen at your convenience.
Many of you may be unaware how strong an “Entrepreneurial State” Florida is. There are over 400,000 businesses in Florida; most have between 1 and 10 employees, and small businesses make up 75% of this state’s GDP. Why is this? It is at least in part because of favorable regulations and business taxes, no personal income tax, and the available educated labor pool.
Florida ranks 11th out of 50 states for entrepreneurship - a top state. The Miami/Dade, Broward & Palm Beach metro area places 4th out of 938 metro areas in the number of small businesses, with over 170,000 (according to a Kaufman Foundation study and SBDC data).
Reach out to Palm Beach Score for help starting your new business, or for questions you might have about your an existing business. Our 60+ certified mentors are waiting to help.
