It's that time again! NC IDEA's 16th Grant Cycle Opens Aug. 12

NC IDEA is seeking grant applications from NC-based entrepreneurs and startups, and those looking to locate to North Carolina, for its Fall 2013 Grant Cycle. Companies focused on software, information technology, medical devices or materials sciences are encouraged to apply at www.ncidea.org.

*NEW THIS CYCLE* Applicants will have the opportunity to submit a two-minute video along with their grant application. Submitting a video is optional but encouraged. The videos can include elevator pitches, product demos, customer stories or other types of pitches that companies feel will help enhance their written application.

In conjunction with the opening of the Fall 2013 Grant Cycle, NC IDEA is hosting a number of info sessions to give interested applicants an overview of NC IDEA's grant process and criteria, what NC IDEA looks for in an application, the types of companies eligible for funding and how to apply.
