Resources to Help Startups and Small Businesses

These are tough times, especially for startups and small businesses. Fulfilling our mission to support entrepreneurs in the Southern Alleghenies is more important than ever. We’re here to help you keep the dream alive.

That’s why Startup Alleghenies is curating information to identify what’s most valuable to our entrepreneurs, and dedicating a section of our website where we will aggregate that content for your information and convenience.

We also will share the latest information on opportunities for financial recovery (whether County, State or Federal) with regular updates to this site, so check in when you can.  Our Entrepreneur Coaches are also ready to help with any personal advice you need.

We’re in this together.  And together, we’ll get through it.

So please share your ideas via posts to our Startup Alleghenies Facebook page to help and inspire other entrepreneurs who are facing similar challenges.
