Governor requests statewide hotline to answer business questions

Entrepreneurs across West Virginia now have a toll-free number to help answer their business questions. Gov. Joe Manchin requested a full-time statewide business hotline during the Nov. 19 Vision Shared E-Policy meeting at the Embassy Suites in Charleston. Effective immediately, businesses can call the West Virginia Business Answer Line at 1-888-982-7232 (1-888-WVA-SBDC) to connect with information on business services available in the state. The Business Answer Line will be staffed during normal work hours, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The statewide service expands a pilot program launched by the West Virginia Small Business Development Center (WVSBDC) this summer. The program was designed to enhance delivery of essential services to West Virginia’s small businesses. Businesses anywhere in the state can call the West Virginia Business Answer Line during normal hours of operation. The SBDC staff review callers’ needs and direct them to services and resources that best match their specific requirements.
