Opportunity in West Virginia Connecting tech companies with Appalachian IT workers

West Virginia might be 2,500 miles from Silicon Valley, but that’s not stopping tech entrepreneurs from finding ways to bring California IT jobs to the Mountain State.

“We have so many talented people already here in West Virginia, we just need to get the word out that we’re here and ready to get to work,” said Todd Cope, CEO of CentralApp, a Huntington-based talent exchange that connects tech companies with IT workers living in West Virginia and other Appalachian states.

In recent months, Cope has traveled the country to sell tech executives on his company’s services and to spread the word about West Virginia.
