Normally each week, on this podcast, we interview West Virginia business leaders and share their success stories.
For the next few days – who knows how long that will be – we’re going to bring you daily special edition broadcasts specifically and intentionally around this basic question: What can West Virginia businesses do – right now – to survive this current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic situation we’re all facing today?
When we first started this podcast project in 2017, we wanted to inspire people and equip people in West Virginia with examples of real-life entrepreneurs and businesses who built businesses in West Virginia.
So, this new urgent situation that we all find ourselves in – falls right in line with our mission of Positively West Virginia.
Every weekday, we will be bringing you these business briefings to help business owners and business leaders – especially small businesses – practical ideas to use today. Right now.
Today, I’m honored to have on the show – Evan Hansen – Evan is Principal with Downstream Strategies. Evan also represents Monongalia County in the West Virginia House of Delegates. In his work with Downstream Strategies, Evan explores resource and environmental problems and solutions in three areas: water, energy, and land. I invited Evan on the show today to talk about some of the things he’s working on in his role with the state government pertaining to businesses in this crisis.
