Capito partners with Google to bring West Virginia small businesses online

Google small business workshop to help West Virginia business owners get online and on the map

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Today, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) announced she will partner with Google to launch the Let’s Put West Virginia on the Map Program. Senator Capito and representatives from Google will host a free tech workshop for Charleston-area small businesses at the Clay Center on Wednesday, Sept. 2, to help business owners launch a website and become visible online.

“By helping business owners reach more customers online, this workshop will empower West Virginia small businesses to utilize the limitless opportunity of today’s technology,” said Senator Capito. “I am proud to join with Google to bring this workshop to Charleston, to build on the work of my Capito Connect Plan and to bridge the digital divide in the Mountain State.”

Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map provides businesses across the U.S. with the practical solutions to be discovered by people searching for products and services online. Businesses that are online are expected to grow twice as fast and hire twice as many workers than those that aren’t. Businesses can go towww.gybo.com to get a free website as well as free tools, training and resources to help their business succeed online.
