Need seed funding for your venture? Consider the Advantage Opportunity Fund.
Advantage West Economic Development Group established the Advantage Opportunity Fund (AOF) to provide high-growth entrepreneurial companies with the critical early stage funding needed to reach key milestones and bridge, capital critical validation events. This fund can provide loans up to $35,000 to high potential start-ups or potential high-growth “existing” companies that might not be fundable by normal channels such as banks, angels, or others due to stage of development or inexperienced management teams.
The AOF is coupled with participation in a formal entrepreneurial training, coaching, and development program managed by the Technology Commercialization Center (TCC) located at the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at AB Technical Community College on the Enka Campus near Asheville and by the Blue Ridge Entrepreneurial Council (BREC), a program of AdvantageWest.
