MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The West Virginia University College of Business and Economics has strengthened its commitment to entrepreneurship by adding a business coach in the BrickStreet Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Deborah Magyar is the new West Virginia Small Business Development Center business coach at B&E, an addition WVU’s business school dean said reaffirms a dedication to fostering entrepreneurship and transforming the business landscape across the state.
“The addition of another entrepreneurial expert to the BrickStreet Center team is further evidence of our commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Javier Reyes, B&E Milan Puskar Dean. “What Deborah Magyar brings to the table is a varied skill set that is designed to help empower entrepreneurship, as well as connect the resources of the center and this business school to the business community.”
Joining the statewide network of business coaches under the WVSBDC, Magyar serves small businesses in Harrison, Marion, Monongalia, Preston and Taylor counties, providing confidential, one-on-one consulting for businesses in the start-up stage, businesses interested in improving or expanding and those looking to sell or are in a succession planning stage – the full life-cycle of the business. This WVSBDC-B&E partnership is win-win as both students and local communities now have access to SBDC services.
“As a business coach, I am here to support and help people gain access to capital, deal with operational issues and human resource issues,” Magyar said. “The support I am here to provide is for business planning, financial analysis, marketing, advertising or any need a business may have.”
