Some very exciting news to share: 80Pct Solutions has been awarded an NC IDEA grant in the Spring 2014 cycle. We’re proud to win the grant and excited to join the NC IDEA network.
If you’re not familiar with NC IDEA, it is an innovative program that makes semi-annual grants to high-potential North Carolina companies. To win the grant, we went through multiple stages of application: first a short proposal, then a full proposal, then a high-stakes pitch. We’re pleased that it turned out successfully.
Moving forward, we’ll be using the grant funds to strategically grow the company and prepare us for new products and services (yes, I’m being intentionally vague). We’ve got big things planned for the next year, so please keep tuned.
A final, important note. This grant is the product of a lot of collaboration and assistance from people who support the company. We want to thank all of you who helped with brainstorming the idea, editing the proposal, analyzing feedback, and shaping the presentation. A special thanks goes to Dina Mills of Launch Chapel Hill, who was instrumental in the process. Thank you!
