Through expert guidance from business coaches, certified entrepreneurial centers and extensive leadership courses, Innovate ND provides the entrepreneurial community of North Dakota the resources needed to help turn an innovative idea into a profitable business.

The program now has five phases that grow as your business grows.

  • Phase-I provides up to $2,500 to advance your business or business idea for an entry fee of $250.
  • Phase-II, upon review, may provide up to $5,000 to advance your business or business idea for an entry fee of $500.
  • Phase-III, upon review, may provide up to $16,500 to advance your business.

Funds can be used to create your business plan, prototype development, coaching and consulting, and marketing assistance at a certified North Dakota entrepreneurial center.

Funding is limited and available on a first come first serve basis. There is no guarantee your business or business idea will go through all three phases.

Other benefits of participation include:

  • Networking opportunities with the Innovate ND entrepreneurial community
  • Access to online entrepreneurial education courses
  • Access to the Innovate ND Idea Studio
  • Innovate ND business boot camps conducted by Dr. Jeff Stamp

  • Be innovative in the way they do business. Can be an existing business model but a new innovative approach must be involved.
  • Serve a market outside of their initial community. 
  • Be based in North Dakota.

Participants not meeting the requirements can still attend boot camps and competitions for $250/year.
