CHARLESTON, WV -

The Black Business Association Supporting Entrepreneurs is looking to increase economic development in the Kanawha Valley by supporting minority entrepreneurs.

The group will host its next open-forum networking and membership event at 5:30 p.m. July 11 at the West Virginia State University Economic Development Center on Charleston's West Side.

President and CEO of Hope Community Development Corp., the Rev. Matthew J. Watts, is scheduled to speak at the forum.

"We'll be discussing recent talks with the state of West Virginia on minority businesses' set-aside contracts and hearing Rev. Watts' take on the recent Tri-State Minority Supplier Development Council Meeting," WVSU extension agent and BBASE co-founder Sandra Moss said in a news release.

BBASE was launched in January by the WVSU Extension Service to promote entrepreneurship, stimulate growth and serve as a resource for black-owned businesses by providing networking and mentoring opportunities.
