  9. Online survey asks West Virginia small businesses about needs, challenges

    Survey open through Feb. 19

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Small businesses in West Virginia have a chance to tell the state what they need to succeed. The West Virginia Small Business Development Center invites owners to share feedback regarding their business challenges and priorities in a confidential online survey on wvsbdc.org/westvirginia.

    The survey can be completed in about 10 minutes. The window of opportunity to take it is open 24 hours a day, but closes at midnight, Friday, Feb. 19.

    The survey is open to all small businesses in the state, whether they have been clients of WVSBDC or not. A small business is defined as any business with fewer than 500 employees.

    “We want to hear the voices of small business owners,” said WVSBDC State Director Kristina Oliver. “Who knows better what it’s like on the front lines of business today than the business owners themselves? By taking the survey, business owners speak up for themselves and serve as champions for the state’s business community as a whole. The more small business owners can tell us about their issues and challenges, the more effectively we can help them achieve their goals.”

    The survey will provide an overview on subjects such as:
    •    Business support
    •    Workforce
    •    Regulations
    •    Operations
    •    Market conditions
    •    Taxes and fees

    Survey respondents will not be identified unless a participant chooses to provide information in the comments section at the end of the survey.

    Businesses with questions about the survey may contact the WVSBDC Business Ask Me! Line at 888-982-7232 or ASKME@wv.gov.
