Business Fundamentals is designed specifically for people who are thinking of starting a business, or have had a business for one year or less. Topics include developing a business plan, applying for a loan, and other essential information on what an entrepreneur needs to know to make their business a success. The 124-page book Going Into Business in West Virginia is provided to attendees.  

An online Business Fundamentals option is also available and allows participants to complete the workshop at their own pace.
