Eastern Panhandle Entrepreneurs Forum

The Eastern Panhandle Entrepreneurs Forum (EPEF) provides free networking and support to small business owners and promotes the formation and growth of innovative new businesses in the Eastern Panhandle.

A collaboration between the economic development authorities in Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan counties, EPEF programs occur quarterly on the first Thursday of the month in February, May, August, and November, and rotates between venues in the three counties. The organization is based on the premise that the future economic vitality of the region comes in large part from the emergence of new businesses through entrepreneurial culture, a pool of resources to draw from, and successful models to follow,

More information can be found on the EPEF’s Facebook and Twitter pages. You may also sign up for EPEF updates by emailing epef@jcda.net.

Next EPEF Program – “You Want to Start a Business – Can You Afford It?” on August 1 at 5:30 p.m. at Inn at Charles Town.
