North Idaho College and the city of Coeur d’Alene are launching a venture fund microgrant program for early-stage entrepreneurs and small businesses in the region.
To be eligible for a venture fund microgrant, applicants must have experience working with at least one of the North Idaho College Venture Network programs: NIC Venture Center, NIC Avista Center for Entrepreneurship, North Idaho Small Business Development Center or GIZMO-CDA.
Qualified participants will receive one or more microgrants of up to $5,000 per recipient for nonlabor business costs.
Residents of Coeur d’Alene are strongly encouraged to apply.
