FORT LAUDERDALE – Broward SCORE (, an all-volunteer nonprofit that provides low-cost workshops for small business and free business mentoring, is launching a series of workshops at the Fred Lippman Multi-Purpose Center thanks to the generosity of the City of Hollywood.

The community center at 2030 Polk Street offers Broward SCORE an ideal location in south Broward, making workshops more accessible to entrepreneurs in south Broward County. SCORE coordinated efforts with Brian Rademacher, the Corridor Redevelopment Manager for Hollywood, to launch the workshops.  

Russell Thompson, Chairman of Broward SCORE, was pleased to announce the partnership. “We appreciate the cooperation and effort by Hollywood administrators to help SCORE secure a new workshop location near the downtown business in Hollywood,” Thompson said. “For many years Broward SCORE has provided mentoring services at our office at 6565 Taft Street, but we haven’t had a workshop location convenient to business owners near downtown and along Federal Highway in Hollywood.”  

At the next workshop scheduled at the Fred Lippman Multi-Purpose Center, Broward SCORE will offer “Thinking of Owning a Business” for aspiring entrepreneurs. The workshop starts at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 17. Broward SCORE Chair Russell Thompson will walk through the steps of starting a business during this free three-hour workshop.
