The application for NC IDEA SEED is now open.

NC IDEA SEED provides $50,000 in non-dilutive funding that supports business activities to validate target markets, reduce risk associated with early stage companies and help startups grow and scale. Grant recipients work with NC IDEA to implement a timeline with an appropriate use of funds and milestones. Grant funds are typically released over the span of 6-12 months in separate milestone-based tranches. Prior to the release of each tranche, grant recipients report on their progress. Beyond grant funding, grant recipients receive support from NC IDEA through mentorship, introductions and programming.

The application is open from August 20th through September 10th at 5:00pm EST.
