BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (WVVA) - A Mountain State consulting firm is looking to help veterans and active service-members grow their small businesses.

Forge is a strategic planning and consulting firm based in Morgantown, W.Va., and the company is set to host a series of webinars this summer -- aimed at educating veterans and active service-members on a range of entrepreneurial and small business strategies.

The first online event is set for June 14th, and will focus on securing government contracts.

A veteran himself, the company’s CEO said the qualities gained through military service can be very useful in the private sector as well.

“They have a lot of the skill-sets imbued in them that they learned from the military,” said Frank Vitale, President and CEO of Forge. “The discipline, they have the stick-to-it-iveness and you know, in cases of veterans that want to serve others, they have that background of service.”
