Company Start-Up and Growth Programs
The North Carolina Biotechnology Center's Business and Technology Development Program is focused on driving the start-up and growth of life science companies throughout North Carolina.
Emerging biotech companies require funding from organizations that share their vision. The Center’s Business and Technology Development program provides low-interest loans to promising early-stage biotech companies across the state.
Connecting N.C. Companies with VC/Angel Investors
The Biotechnology Center understands that its grant and loan funding will, in most cases, not be sufficient to move a product from the lab to the market. As such, we lead a number of activities to promote investment in N.C.'s biotechnology companies from external sources. These activities have played a key role in generating more than $100 in subsequent funding for every Biotech Center dollar awarded to North Carolina-based companies.
Technology Transfer and Entrepreneur Programs
We provide a series of programs that specifically serve the entrepreneurial community and university technology transfer offices in the state. These include the BATON Program, the Technology Enhancement Grant, our Pharma-Academic Partnering events, and the Entrepreneurship Essentials series.
Venture Capital and Angel Investor Groups
Venture and angel capital can be a crucial element to the growth of a biotechnology company. See a list of North Carolina-based investment groups that actively invest in emerging life science companies.
