Deadline fast approaching NC IDEA’s Spring 2019 Grant Cycle


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.

NC IDEA is an independent private foundation committed to empowering North Carolinians to achieve their entrepreneurial potential.

The deadline to apply for NC IDEA’s Spring 2019 Grant Cycle is March 4 at 5pm (EST).

Early stage, growth-oriented companies can apply for one of two different NC IDEA grants:

  • NC IDEA MICRO awards project-based grants up to $10K to young companies looking to validate and advance their idea.
  • NC IDEA SEED offers $50K grants to early stage companies, often the critical funding they need to scale faster.

Please note that applicants may only apply to either MICRO or SEED (not both) during a grant cycle.
