NC IDEA hosts Office Hours for Entrepreneurs every Friday morning by appointment only in 30-minute time increments between 9:30am and 11:30am. Office Hour appointments are intended for NC-based entrepreneurs and companies focused on software, information technology, medical devices or material sciences. Entrepreneurs can use these sessions to ask general business questions and get advice and guidance from experienced mentors that understand the challenges of startups. During these sessions, we are happy to answer general questions you may have regarding eligibility in our grants program but the time is intended for business coaching, not application coaching. If you have specific questions related to the grants program, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-941-5600.
These sessions are held at NC IDEA's office in the American Underground on the American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham.
