Resource Partner Tool Kit

Thank you for registering your organization as a Resource Partner with WV BusinessLink!

What is the West Virginia BusinessLink?
West Virginia BusinessLink (BusinessLink), a function of the West Virginia Department of Economic Development, is a starting point for creating a network that links area entrepreneurs and business owners to local, regional, and state services to help companies launch, grow, and prosper.

As a technology tool, BusinessLink provides:
● Access to dynamic web directory of service providers offering a broad range of expertise
● Quick links to the appropriate resources to assist in starting or growing a business

Who can be part of BusinessLink?
Any not-for-profit, government, or educational organization that serves entrepreneurs and small businesses can be included in the online platform. There is no cost to be listed. Simply complete the online form found via the link below.

If an organization joins the network, does it still keep its own identity?
Absolutely. Each organization continues to operate as it does today. BusinessLink’s purpose is to help entrepreneurs find the right resource at the right time. This is accomplished by facilitating connections to the services included in our database.

How does BusinessLink help service provider partners?
● Greater community awareness and publicity of services
● Compilation of referral and visibility statistics
● Identification of criteria frequently searched by business owners, which leads to insights that will be shared with participating Resource Partners

On this page, we will be providing a tool kit for partners that they can use to promote their engagement with the West Virginia BusinessLink.   If you have any questions about the tools provided here please do not hesitate to reach out to
