Tug Valley Entrepreneurship Group

The Tug Valley Entrepreneurship Group was formed recently to promote entrepreneurship as an economic development strategy for our area. This group is conducting research on how other rural communities across the country are growing their local economies by supporting and encouraging entrepreneurs. This research is being used to help create an economic development strategy for our area. To date, the group has defined its mission and a four-year vision, focusing on three areas of perceived need: fostering an entrepreneurial spirit in our community, creating a one-stop shop to actively support local entrepreneurs, and attracting new business ventures to our area. The newly formed group has been meeting monthly at the Mingo County Redevelopment Authority offices. If you would like to participate in the group's efforts please contact Bruce Curry.
