Event Details

Innovation Fund North Carolina, a source of preseed capital and education for technology start-ups in North Carolina, launches its third funding cycle with information sessions in Fayetteville, Wilmington, Raleigh, Greensboro, Asheville and Charlotte. Start-ups working in Agricultural Technology, Advanced Manufacturing Technology, Healthcare Technology and IT/Communications can apply for $25,000 grants or up to $100,000 loan (non-recourse) award. Following the information sessions, Innovation Fund North Carolina will begin accepting applications on May 1, 2014. Limited funding is available. 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.

Organizer

Innovation Fund North Carolina

Innovation Fund North Carolina (IFNC) aims to bridge a common funding gap between when entrepreneurs have exhausted their personal funding and when their companies can attract angel and venture capital funding. IFNC makes pre-seed funding awards to help entrepreneurs validate their technologies and business concepts. In addition to funding, IFNC provides education and mentoring resources to all awardees. IFNC is funded by financial donations from businesses, organizations and individuals. Its founding partners include Catawba Valley Community College, Fayetteville Technical Community College and the City of Conover. IFNC is a self-funded member of Innovation Fund America, which was established with the support of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, to nurture the growth of promising, high-impact startups.
