During the month of January, NC IDEA FOUNDATION will be traveling throughout the state visiting some of our partners to provide local entrepreneurs an overview of NC IDEA FOUNDATION programming, specifically focusing on our three Spring 2019 grant opportunities that support ambitious, growth-oriented companies: NC IDEA MICRO ($10,000); NC IDEA SEED ($50,000) and an Investment Crowdfunding Grant ($5,000) through a partnership with Localstake NC.

Each session will kick-off with an NC IDEA team member giving a brief walk through of the various grants and programs offered by the Foundation and how they may benefit you and your company. The remainder of the session will be interactive; sharing tips and best practices for writing a competitive grant application, covering the anatomy of the application with specifics on what the reviewers are looking for in each section. Eligibility requirements for NC IDEA MICRO, NC IDEA SEED, and the Investment Crowdfunding Grant will also be covered to provide you with a greater understanding of each opportunity and which one may be most appropriate and beneficial for you and your company.
