MADISONVILLE, Ky. (WFIE) – A Free Business Development Program for women and minority-owned businesses was held in Madisonville Thursday.
The Madisonville-Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation partnered with the Madisonville Minority Economic Development Council to offer a free 8 A certification class for all women and minorities at the Kentucky Innovation Station in Madisonville.
The 8 A Business Development Program offers a broad scope of assistance to firms that are majority owned by women and or minorities. Small business owner Brashyia Peyton says events like this can help make connections.
”Well if you want your business to expand or your business to succeed you have to get yourself out there. So events like this really does help us do that, and I’m thankful for that,” said Peyton.
Peyton is having a grand opening of her beauty and fashion business ‘We Clash’ in Madisonville this Sunday.
