    Business Incubation

    Locally owned companies create new jobs, increase our tax base and enhance the quality of life for all in our community. This is particularly the case for technology-based businesses. Coming this Fall 2010 the IEC will open its business incubator to provide emerging technology companies in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia with high-quality facilities and infrastructure necessary to enable early-stage companies to succeed and grow. The IEC Incubator services and facilities will include:

  • Professional mentoring and advisory services
  • Introduction to business-to-business networks and organizations
  • Market research and technology assessment
  • Offices and workstations
  • Professional meeting and conference rooms
  • High-tech I.T. infrastructure
  • If you own an invention, intellectual property, or simply have a technology-based idea or
    concept, we invite you to participate in our workshops and seminars. In addition, if you have the necessary passion and tenacity to grow a business and would welcome a supportive environment and people to help you succeed we invite you to complete a preliminary application IEC services.
