Intellectual Capitol, the business incubator formed thanks to a partnership between Wheeling Academy of Law and Science (WALS) and West Liberty University's Center for Entrepreneurship, will host "Where to Start? An A to Z Presentation for Entrepreneurs," on Thursday, Feb. 6.
The program will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Intellectual Capitol, located in the First State Capitol, at 1413 Eoff St. in downtown Wheeling. It will cover the essentials for a business start up and will host experts in the fields of business, law, social media, marketing and accounting in order to answer questions first hand.
"We are working hard to provide the tools necessary to encourage any entrepreneur wishing to take creative ideas to the marketplace," said Dr. Carrie White, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship. "Intellectual Capitol has the resources and we want to make building small businesses in our area as easy and as successful as possible."
Following the program there will be a Mardi Gras-themed celebration and after party with hors d'oeuvres, cash bar and special music and entertainment.
