About Mark Burdette

My passion in life is entrepreneurship. For over 28 years I have been an entrepreneur and have served entrepreneurs in various capacities. Whether it is starting tech companies, raising venture capital, coaching business owners one on one or in a group setting, consulting, or collaborating and implementing entrepreneurial development strategies with business and community leaders to help them develop and grow an entrepreneurship ecosystem is what drives me each and every day. I’m a people person, connector, small business champion, and have been fortunate to develop key business development relationships throughout the state of West Virginia and all over the United States as it pertains to starting and growing companies, raising money, promoting entrepreneurship, implementing entrepreneurial development systems, and supporting entrepreneurship ecosystems. I love meeting new people and if you share the same interests as I do and are interested in exploring the possibilities of working together please contact me today.
