Our FASTER WV (acronym stands for Fostering Advantages for Start Ups & Entrepreneurial Resurgence in WV) initiative is here to identify, encourage, and support businesses like yours through a series of information-packed webinars and other helpful resources.
Through its FASTER WV Initiative, Advantage Valley and its partners (WV Small Business Development Center, Unlimited Future, Inc., Bridge Valley Community and Technical College, and the Wyoming County Economic Development Authority) are building a stronger culture of entrepreneurship in the region, providing entrepreneurs and small business owners with:
- Informational webinars
