Innovation Fund North Carolina Info Session at First Flight

WHEN: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 10:00 AM

Innovation Fund North Carolina is launching its third funding cycle and will begin accepting applications on May 1, 2014. Join us for this free information session to learn about this new source of preā€seed capital and education for technology startups in North Carolina. Companies in Agricultural Technology, Advanced Manufacturing Technology, Healthcare Technology and IT/Communications can apply for $25,000 grants or up to $100,000 loan (non-collateral) award. Interested entrepreneurs are highly encouraged to attend one of the scheduled information sessions.

Innovation Fund North Carolina combines critical pre-seed funding, education, mentoring and talent to accelerate the growth of early stage tech start-ups in North Carolina, providing them with a competitive edge to succeed. In its debut, Innovation Fund North Carolina, led by Catawba Valley Community College as part of a national demonstration project, seeks to invest in start-up companies. In addition to providing critical funding at a stage often deemed too risky by equity investors, recipients get the added benefits of coaching and mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs as well as added talent in the form of student interns. If you are an entrepreneur with an innovation-oriented idea, Innovation Fund North Carolina can be just what you need to move forward.
