Join this event to gain some valuable insight into the NC IDEA grant review process, network with the NC IDEA team and other founders, and meet some of the previous grant awardees.
The Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (formerly Ventureprise) will be hosting the NC IDEA FOUNDATION to provide an overview of the upcoming 2023 NC IDEA MICRO ($10,000) and NC IDEA SEED ($50,000) grants, which provide funding to early-stage, high-growth companies.
During the first part of the session, you will have a chance to learn about NC IDEA and meet part of the team, including Amy Bastian and Leigh Blancato, who manage the MICRO and SEED process. In addition, past grant recipients will share their perspectives on the grant application process and on the benefits of being an NC IDEA grant recipient.
The second part of the prep session will provide tips and best practices for writing a successful application, with plenty of time for questions.
Applications are due on Aug. 28.
