NC IDEA Announces Opening Date of Spring 2021 Grants 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.


The MICRO grant provides small amounts of funding to entrepreneurs who are testing a big, new business idea. Through small, project-based grants, NC IDEA MICRO awards $10K in funding to young companies looking to validate and advance their idea.

SEED Grant

The SEED grant offers early stage companies the critical funding they need to scale faster. Their $50K grants are awarded to innovative startups with a proven concept – even if they are not yet profitable. The funds, along with mentorship and guidance, push companies forward and reduce risk associated with growing startups.

Applications for the Spring 2021 Grants Cycle open on February 1, 2021.
