(WBNG Binghamton) SUNY Broome is teaming up with Greater Binghamton SCORE to help mentor small business entrepreneurs.

The Entrepreneurial Assistance Program (EAP) at SUNY Broome Community College is partnering with Greater Binghamton SCORE Chapter 217. They will partner in the 12-week, 60-hour Fall program beginning Sept. 10 - Dec. 12 that meets at 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evenings providing one-on-one mentoring for small business entrepreneurs with nurturing their business idea and assistance with writing a business plan.
