Entrepreneur Express

Entrepreneur Express: Moving Your Business Forward is Virginia's showcase program for helping new and early stage businesses. Pilot tested in Southwest Virginia in late 2006, these half-day workshops proved so popular and effective that they were taken statewide in mid-2007. Over 4,000 entrepreneurs have been trained. Entrepreneur Express brings straight talk and local resources to one convenient place so that entrepreneurs can find the information and assistance they need.

Entrepreneur Express is partnership between VDBA and many local, state, and Federal resources providers, including Virginia's Small Business Development Centers, Virginia's Community College System, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Tourism Corporation, SCORE, City and County Economic Development offices, and Chambers of Commerce.
