Nursing Businesses Gearing Up!
FONWV launched the Nurse Entrepreneurship Project with generous funding from the Campaign for Action Innovation Award and a matching economic development grant from the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation. Fourteen nurses are in the first class. Each developed a vision and mission and learned business planning from WV Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Acting Director, Steve Johnson. After the first class, participants review a series of webinars on aspects of business development and engage in individual coaching by phone. On November 14th, they will present their business "Shark Tank" style for feedback from SBDC coaches and WV nurses in business. Visions include: post-partum education, a service for displaced teens, medical transportation service, in home elder care, long term care and more. See more photos
