Through a highly competitive annual business competition, PTP NEXT, working in partnership with the Piedmont Triad Partnership and NC IDEA, identifies promising Piedmont Triad companies and provides access to grants and support.
Gina Stewart, co-founder of Arctic Inc a company that develops environmentally friendly weed control using non-toxic frost, says this about the grant: " NC IDEA’s crucial ‘first money in’ gives a vote of confidence to later investors, whether they are other granting agencies, angels, VCs or corporate partners. Creating an NC IDEA program for the Triad will stimulate entrepreneurial economic development."
The online application launches on Monday August 15th and will close on September 9th. Detailed info about eligibility and the review process is on the PTP NEXT website http://ptpnext.com.
