Small Business Development Center

SBDCThe West Virginia Small Business Development Center provides expert guidance to help small businesses succeed.  We provide the services and assistance your business needs throughout the development process including concept, startup and growth.  Our statewide network of business coaches partner with you - and collaborate with each other - to help you move your business to the next level.  Many of our coaches have entrepreneurial experience themselves.

WVSBDC business coaches are highly skilled individuals who have professional certifications ranging from exporting, innovation, technology and economic development, to finance, management, marketing and entrepreneurship.  Our coaches can guide you in how to write business plans, manage projects effectively and find greater access to capital.

If you are starting a business, consider attending one of our Business Fundamentals workshops.  There you will learn about the start-up process, important considerations and decisions you should make before you start, the various regulations and registrations, and the fundamentals of a business plan.

For more information or to register for a workshop, contact the local WVSBDC housed on the Wheeling campus at  304-214-8973, by e-mail at, or visit our website at
