All About Nonprofits
Similar to businesses, nonprofit organizations - in order to succeed - must operate under the same basic guidelines as for-profit entities. While not primarily focused on making money, nonprofits must generate revenue annually to cover expenses, further their mission and pay staff. On April 23, certified SCORE Bucks County mentors will lead a workshop, “All About Nonprofits.” The goal is to enhance the success of a nonprofit with review and discussion of the following topics: governance, financial reporting, fundraising, staffing and planning. SCORE mentor Joseph Lutes, who has spent more than 30 years in the investment industry, working mostly as a Chief Financial Officer of a $35 billion organization will lead the discussion as it relates to governance and financials. Joe served as the finance director for three separate nonprofits and has served on numerous nonprofit boards. SCORE mentor Peter Niche has spent more than 30 years serving as a board member for various charities. He also spent more than 10 years on the executive committee of a board and served as the executive director for more than a year. He will share his expertise in the banking, finance and insurance; accommodation and food services; technical and scientific services; and professional and business services. SCORE mentor Rob Purdy has nearly 40 years’ experience working in the insurance and financial industry sectors. He can discuss finance-related aspects of operating a nonprofit, as well as business strategy and planning and operations. He has expertise in various industries, including manufacturing and industrial, public and professional organizations, hospitality, health care and social assistance. Join us and learn more about: • Starting a nonprofit • Board member recruitment and responsibilities • Staffing • Fundraising • Managing a nonprofit The workshop will be held at Contract Pharmacy, 125 Titus Ave. in Warrington. Cost is only $15 and includes light refreshments. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. To register, click here: http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=bmwxhscab&oeidk=a07egy8a98z671517e7

SCORE Bucks Helps Client Transition from Manager to Business Owner MaryBeth Karpel had been working in the water treatment industry for 20 years and was contemplating what her work would entail under new ownership. “I did not want the uncertainty and change,” Karpel said of her role with a new owner. “At this point in my life did I want to start from scratch?” The answer was a resounding no. While meeting with prospective buyers to “put feelers out,” Karpel, a general manager who handled the day-to-day operations for EPA Water Consultants Inc., realized that instead of presenting the opportunity for others, she should consider it for herself. “I was running the company and someone else was taking home the profits,” Karpel said, noting one of her reasons for wanting to purchase the business. Karpel, along with a partner, purchased the Quakertown-based company in the fall of 2019. SCORE Bucks County mentor Steve Wolfson, who purchased and owned a wholesale business for 30 years, guided her throughout the process. Wolfson keeps her “accountable,” she said. He also provides real-world advice on high-level decisions, as well as insight on human resources, taxes and finding an accountant and lawyers. “You just know that someone is there supporting you, in your corner,” Karpel said, adding, “He certainly isn’t averse to challenging me. I’ve really come to rely on his support.” Wolfson, a SCORE mentor for the last year, has had plenty of experience starting businesses. Before owning his own company, Wolfson had started 15 businesses for major companies, making him a top choice to lead Karpel in her entrepreneurial venture. “MaryBeth came to SCORE with the goal of buying a business and the passion to make it happen,” Wolfson said. “It was exciting to assist her and see her goals realized.” At first, Karpel said she thought her business was too small to take advantage of SCORE’s mentoring and support. “I didn’t want to waste his time,” she said. “He couldn’t have been more helpful in saying ‘it doesn’t matter that it’s that small.’” Karpel said Wolfson gave her a much-needed confidence boost and assured her that “I could do it.” For others contemplating business ownership Karpel suggests making use of SCORE’s invaluable tools, training, support and free mentoring. “Take advantage of what they have to offer,” Karpel said. “Even if it’s just the initial meeting and going from there. Set an appointment with a mentor. It’s such a valuable resource. To not take advantage of that would be a shame.” About SCORE   Since 1964, SCORE has helped more than 8.5 million aspiring entrepreneurs. Each year, SCORE provides small business mentoring and workshops to more than 375,000 new and growing small businesses. With 50 members across the county, SCORE Bucks County provides over 1,500 free mentoring services annually to local small business owners through one-on-one counseling and small business seminars.

Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center’s Inaugural Vendor Expo a Success
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (February 6, 2020) – The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center held its first ever Vendor Expo on Thursday, February 6, 2020. Fourteen vendors participated in the lunch time expo with participation from over 100 attendees from the PABC and general public. “WorldWide Life Sciences was pleased to sponsor the PA Biotech vendor expo to pledge our continued support of the Hepatitis B Foundation, Baruch S. Blumberg Institute and all operating companies working within the PA Biotech Center. It is always rewarding to meet the scientists behind the innovation to fight against Hepatitis B, liver disease and liver cancers globally. We value our partnership with the PA Biotech Center and look forward to assisting all scientists and staff in reaching their scientific goals,” said Christopher Conway, president of Wordlwide Life Sciences, Premier Sponsor of the event. Vendors representing contract research organizations, staffing solutions, diagnostics, analytics and back office solutions attended the two-hour event to share their products and services with the 40+ small to mid-size companies in the PABC and the scientists from the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute, the research arm of the Hepatitis B Foundation. PABC is launching a major expansion effort slated to break ground in Spring 2020. The expansion will add an additional 37,000 square feet of space, including laboratories, office space and an auditorium, and is expected to create 100 new jobs at the Doylestown facility. The expansion will include the creation of the Hatch BioAccelerator, a program for a limited number of select early stage companies, providing office and laboratory space, mentoring, consultation, and advisory services, in addition to access to the supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem of the Center. Due to the success of the event, The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center plans to host another vendor expo this coming summer. Please contact events@hepb.org for more information. About the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center: The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center of Bucks County is a non-profit that offers state-of-the-art laboratory and office space to research and biotech companies. Established by the Hepatitis B Foundation and managed by the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute, the Center was funded in part by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
