Invest in the future of WV small businesses.

Start, Scale, Succeed Mentorship Program

We connect mentees with mentors across West Virginia to learn how to become better business owners. Through our web-based platform, participants can make connections and find tools and resources to help them identify and achieve goals.

Expand your network. Gain new knowledge and insights. Build new skills.

Whether it is a one-time phone call, coffee meeting, or Zoom, or an ongoing 90-day connection following our framework, mentoring relationships will benefit all who participate. A mentor can help you with:

  • general career advice
  • information on higher studies
  • technical information
  • personal encouragement
  • overcoming the challenges of COVID in your business
