The Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) will sponsor a free afternoon workshop Nov. 8 at the Schoenbaum Center (1701 Fifth Ave.) in Charleston for individuals interested in creating their own businesses.

Start-Up Day will focus on how to get a new business off the ground, the resources available to help ensure success and how using a solid social media marketing strategy can grow a small business.

The featured speaker is Joseph Kapp, president and co-founder of the National Center for Resource Development and entrepreneur-in-residence at Eastern West Virginia Community & Technical College.

The event will run from noon to 4 p.m. Because lunch will be provided, registration is required by Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. at
