CHARLESTON, WV – The Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs (HHOMA)
hosted the 6th Annual Minority Business Expo at the Charleston Coliseum
& Convention Center on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019. The event was
sponsored by Marshall University, West Virginia American Water, the West
Virginia Community and Technical College System, the West Virginia
Department of Veterans Assistance, West Virginia State University, and
West Virginia University.
More than 300 people attended the expo and learned about strategies for
creating or improving a business.
“We are so excited with the content that the presenters provided to all
of our attendees,” HHOMA Executive Director Jill Upson said. “We are
hoping for increased economic activity from West Virginia’s minority
population. The information given at this expo will help these
underrepresented populations get the valuable resources they need to
start a new business or expand their existing business.”
