Positively West Virginia is a 501 (c) 3 Not-for-profit organization dedicated to equipping small businesses and entrepreneurs with tools they need to succeed in West Virginia.
At Positively West Virginia, we believe entrepreneurs and small businesses are the backbone of West Virginia.
Since November 2017, Positively West Virginia has been on a mission to inspire and equip small business owners, leaders and entrepreneurs – by telling positive, inspirational stories about West Virginia businesses.
Each week we feature in-depth interviews (40-45 minutes) of the actual people leading companies that are doing great things for the communities they serve in West Virginia. We share their stories and the “secrets” behind their success.
Our vision is to inspire people to start and build great companies here in West Virginia. We encourage young people to stay in West Virginia, we encourage business leaders to move to West Virginia, and we invite those who left the Mountain State to come back and start a business here in West Virginia.
We share these inspirational business stories through our media channels. We aspire to inspire, educate and promote our audience to do great things in our West Virginia communities.
