Small businesses in Carmel and Fishers will soon be able to receive mentoring services. OneZone, an organization formed by the merger of the Carmel and Fishers chambers of commerce, has announced a partnership with Indianapolis SCORE.

SCORE offers free small business mentoring throughout the nation. OneZone says beginning this month, volunteers from the Indianapolis SCORE chapter will offer on-site mentoring to members of the organization.

OneZone President Mo Merhoff said, "We consider the on-site mentoring availability for OneZone members a complement to our strategic plan objective to assist members in the growth and success of their businesses.” Executive Vice President Dan Canan added the benefits of the partnership has the potential to be a "homerun" for OneZone members.

"The Indianapolis SCORE chapter is eager to expand the scope of our services in central Indiana," said Bill Petrovic, chairman of Indianapolis SCORE. "This initiative with OneZone is a major step forward and a perfect fit for our chapter."
