A quick plug for the Innovate ND program. A ton of area North Dakota-based startups have used this over the years and if you are working on a new idea or product, you should give it a look. Participants have the opportunity to access up to $40,000 in grant funds through a 4-phase process ($2,000, $6,000, $12,000, $20,000). Through each phase, participants will present information to a panel for feedback and an assessment of program advancement.
