Whether you have just launched a startup or are looking to grow and scale your company, NC IDEA has resources that can help in the success of your journey when and where you need it most. Early-stage, growth-oriented companies can apply for one of two different NC IDEA grants:
- NC IDEA MICRO awards $10,000 project-based grants to young companies looking to validate and advance their idea.
- NC IDEA SEED offers $50,000 grants to early-stage companies, often the critical funding they need to scale faster.
Note: Applicants may only apply to either MICRO or SEED (not both) during the grant cycle. Spring 2024 MICRO and SEED grant applications open on Jan. 29 and close on Feb. 26.
