Small Business

In Jefferson County, West Virginia, we deeply believe in the importance of small business development for economic growth. Jefferson County’s largest business sector is comprised of small businesses ranging from information technology and manufacturing to retail and recreation. These businesses provide outstanding commercial opportunities in our community, and we encourage them to grow and develop in as many ways as possible by providing free access to an SBDC-certified business coach.

Small businesses also have access to support through the West Virginia Small Business Development Center (WVSBDC), an Eastern Panhandle a division of the West Virginia Development Office. The WVSBDC promotes economic development in West Virginia through practical, interrelated services that provide assistance to existing small businesses and entrepreneurs.
