There is no elevator to success...you have to take the stairs!

The WVDO standing on stairs

There are 116,599 small businesses registered in the Mountain State, making up nearly 95.7 percent of all employers. The U.S. Small Business Administration’s West Virginia District Office is here to help make your journey up the stairs of starting or expanding your small business easier. 

Getting your business up and running or expanding it to the next level means taking the stairs to get there instead of an easy ride on the elevator.

In FY2015, the SBA guaranteed nearly $35.5 million in loans for West Virginia small businesses contributing to retaining and creating more than 1,550 jobs. The office trained more than 1,000 small businesses on how to do business with the federal government and assisted more than 5,000 clients through customized training events throughout the state. 

If you are taking the stairs each day to start or grow your small business, contact SBA’s West Virginia District Office for help! Click here for our office directory.
