Centerstate CEO – Grants For Growth
I just got this from the Cornell Entrepreneur-in-Residence Tom Schryver!
Centerstate CEO has announced a new round of their Grants For Growth program. The (new) structure is:
$25,000 nondilutive grants for proof of concept development (or)
$75,000 – $150,000 convertible notes for commercialization / scale-up
Programs must be a combination of company and academic partner, and the intent of the program is to create and retain high-paying, high-quality jobs in the region. This program has been very helpful to a number of regional startups, and the structure allows for a lot of flexibility in funding proof of concept development and commercialization.
