NJEDA to Hold Monthly Office Hours Highlighting Innovation Programs

To respond to challenges faced by New Jersey technology and biotechnology companies in raising capital, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is launching monthly Innovation Programs Office Hours to highlight programs offered by the Authority to stimulate the innovation economy. Alternating between in-person and virtual events, these will offer one-on-one sessions with the NJEDA’s Innovation team to discuss programs and networking opportunities with industry stakeholders.

“Gov. Phil Murphy is committed to the longstanding success of New Jersey’s innovation economy, and under his administration, the NJEDA has enhanced and expanded its offerings to support the growth of innovative New Jersey companies,” said NJEDA CEO Tim Sullivan. “The new initiative by the NJEDA’s Innovation team will ensure that businesses and investors contributing to the strength of the Garden State’s innovation community understand the range of resources the Authority offers and can leverage its support to thrive.”

Participation in office hours is encouraged for pre-seed, seed, early-stage, and growth-stage startup companies in the technology and life sciences industries, as well as investors seeking opportunities in innovative companies. Programs covered will include direct company investments, such as the Angel Match Program, and investor benefits, such as the Angel Investor Tax Credit Program.
