Newly launched “Seed WV” designed to do what its name implies

The John Chambers College of Business and Economics at West Virginia University has announced a statewide entrepreneurial contest for residents of the state.

Titled “Seed WV,” the contest is the first of its kind in the Mountain State, according to this recent announcement. “’Seed WV’ builds on the observation that many successful companies started with small amounts of financial capital and bootstrapped their way to success,” said Javier Reyes, Milan Puskar Dean of the Chambers College and Vice President of Start-up West Virginia. “Through ‘Seed WV,’ we will seek to leverage small amounts of capital to drive substantial economic impact throughout the state.”
