On April 12, SCORE kicked off a national E-Business Now initiative. It’s the first-ever public/private partnership to encourage digital literacy by U.S. small businesses. The consortium formed in response to The Broadband Plan released by the Federal Communications Commission. They have created a new website with great technology resources: www.ebusinessnow.org
SCORE is also doing regional events to help small businesses understand how technology can help them run more efficiently and compete more globally. The entire effort focuses on leveling the playing field for business success.
The next regional event will be held Sept. 27, 2011 in Philadelphia, PA so stay tuned for details.
Fortune 500 companies and leading technology firms are partnered with SCORE to provide training, tools, and resources to small businesses. Partners include AT&T, Best Buy, Cisco, Constant Contact, Google, HP, Intuit, Microsoft, Skype, and Time Warner Cable Business Class. The small business partner is DRT Strategies.
