A workshop will be held at Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College Thursday, May 8, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to teach Business Fundamentals.


The workshop is part of the West Virginia Small Business Development Center training and business coaching program called Three Step Jump Start. The goal of the program is to “help entrepreneurs and small business owners in West Virginia accelerate their potential success by learning the structure and services provided by WVSBDC.”


The first step, according to the WVSBDC, is to view the Three Step Jump Start video on the agency’s website. Participants can then register to attend one of the workshops which are designed specifically for start-ups and new businesses.


After completion of the workshop, interested entrepreneurs and business owners may schedule an appointment with WVSBDC for one-on-one coaching sessions that provide assistance with business plan development, financial statement preparation, cash flow analysis and other services.


There is a $35-per-person fee for the workshop, and registration is required at least two days in advance.


To register, call Dreama Wolfingbarger at 304-957-2083 or email dreama.l.wolfingbarger@wv.gov. The workshop will be held in Building B, Room 227, Logan SWVCTC.
