West Virginia’s Greenbrier Valley has a healthy local economy, thanks in large part to the diverse mix of companies that do business here. The Greenbrier Valley EDC recognizes the importance of supporting local businesses, which we do through a wide variety of programs and services.
The Greenbrier Valley EDC team works closely with companies to discuss their objectives and help find ways to achieve them. Depending upon the situation, that may include identifying available incentives, or programs. We also provide some direct financing and can connect business owners with other funding options. When a business needs infrastructure improvements to make a project possible, we guide them through the process and connect them with key decision-makers.
Accessing Educational Resources
Greenbrier Valley EDC also discusses workforce and training needs, making connections between company leadership and the education providers who are willing to serve as partners. For example, we can help businesses arrange customized training programs to enhance the skill of their employees or prepare them for new processes. We work with providers such as Workforce WV, New River Community & Technical College, the Robert C. Byrd Institute, and West Virginia University to match programs to specific needs.
Building Stronger Connections
The Greenbrier Valley EDC can connect you to powerful partners across the region, including government programs, chambers of commerce, industry groups, and local and state leadership. Our team can also take your company’s leaders on site visits to local education providers so they can get a firsthand look at the quality of workforce-focused programs. These providers appreciate feedback from employers to help them adapt their programs to the changing needs of the business world. By connecting with the Greenbrier Valley EDC, you tap into the vast network of business support in West Virginia.
