Expanding Eastern NC’s Entrepreneurial Ecosystem
NCIFund and the National Institute of Minority Economic Development have launched the Eastern NC Entrepreneurial Promise (ENCEP). ENCEP is a virtual regional incubator for diverse companies in underserved counties of eastern North Carolina.
ENCEP serves businesses that:
- Are run by minorities or women
- Are located in economically distressed (Tier I or Tier II, see below) counties in Eastern NC
- Have revenues of less than $250,000 and opportunities to scale.
There is no cost to participants. ENCEP is funded by a generous grant from NC IDEA Foundation.
