Join us on Tuesday, July 27th 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.

Ventureprise will be hosting the NC IDEA FOUNDATION to provide an overview of NC IDEA FOUNDATION programming, specifically focusing on the upcoming NC IDEA SEED and MICRO Programs, which provides up to $50,000 grants to early-stage, high-growth companies.

During the first part of the session you will have a chance to learn about NC IDEA and introduce yourself to part of the team, including Thom Ruhe, Amy Bastian and Chelsea Caughlin . They will briefly walk through the various programs of the foundation and discuss those that may benefit your company, including NC IDEA LABS.

The second part of the prep session will be interactive with direct feedback on what it means to submit a successful application for your venture. The session will provide tips and best practices for writing a successful application, covering the anatomy of the grant application with specifics on what the reviewers are looking for in each section.
