SCORE Lincoln ( is thrilled to Introduce two new Certified Business Mentors: Stacia Thiesen, a Business Banker with Union Bank and Trust in their Small Business Department since 2016, and Kyle Cartwright, who will balance mentoring SCORE clients as well as managing his own company.

Stacia joined SCORE to help clients who want to start a business or already have a small business. She states, “I enjoy mentoring my customers, preparing them for what they need to know in order to receive capital from a bank. SCORE is a wonderful organization helping small business owners and I would love to be able to give back to the community.”

According to Kyle, he joined SCORE to “offer value to other business leaders and entrepreneurs in their journey and, likewise, I think I would learn much from peers, mentors and mentees alike through involvement with the program. I have a particular interest in helping folks who don’t look like me to be successful entrepreneurs.”

SCORE Lincoln, the local chapter of the nation’s largest network of expert business mentors, is a nonprofit organization and a partner of the SBA. Dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground and achieve their business goals, SCORE has provided FREE mentorship and education to more than 11 million entrepreneurs since 1964.
