November is National Entrepreneurship Month and a time for recognizing the grit, determination, innovation and contribution of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners to the nation’s economy. Amidst all the celebrations, however, it’s hard to ignore the fact that only half of all small businesses survive more than five years.

There is growing evidence, however, that connecting your business with a mentor can change this statistic.

Not sure, I know SCORE has over 11,000. The biggest difference between a coach is that its task oriented, short-term and performance-driven, whereas a mentor is more about development through long-term relationships.

Caron: Thanks for your reply! Does SCORE communicate with similar organizations in other countries?

Do you know how many mentors are active in the U.S.? What's the difference between a mentor and a coach?
