- In February of 2014, SCORE, working in collaboration with the Broome County IDA, proactively contacted each of the early stage businesses that had been a part of the Binghamton Innovation Center. The intent was for each of the businesses and SCORE to together determine if there was a fit for the businesses needs and the skills & resources that SCORE had to support these business ventures.
- Tony Quagliata was doing research in a number of potential business endeavors.
- SCORE Certified Mentors David Burch & Berdell Boss began working with Tony, to help him determine & then progress his first priority business endeavor.
- Discussed that it would be best to focus on 1 endeavor, based upon priorities (financial, personal interest, timeframe, risk, etc). Tony agreed to give this some thought on which one should be his top priority.
