Advantage Valley is Fertile Soil for Growth-Minded Entrepreneurs
Advantage Valley has always been a great place to start or grow a small business, and our team provides a wealth of resources to small business owners and entrepreneurs alike. Our FASTER WV (the acronym stands for Fostering Advantages for Start-Ups & Entrepreneurial Resurgence in WV) initiative is here to identify, encourage, and support businesses like yours through one-on-one business coaching, a series of information-packed workshops, basic business entrepreneurship courses, technical assistance, mini-grants, and loans from a revolving loan fund.
Let us help you as you navigate the challenges of starting or scaling a small business in Advantage Valley.
Through its FASTER WV Initiative, Advantage Valley and its partners (Unlimited Future, Inc., and the Wyoming County Economic Development Authority) are building a stronger culture of entrepreneurship in the region, which is comprised of Boone, Braxton, Cabell, Clay, Jackson, Kanawha, Lincoln, Putnam, Mason and Wayne Counties.
Participants will work one-on-one with a FASTER WV business coach, take an entrepreneurship training class, and consider tapping into a Revolving Loan Fund to start or grow a business in the region.
