NJEDA to Host Information Session for Next Phase of the New Jersey Innovation Evergreen Fund


Opportunity for stakeholders to learn about this first-in-the-nation investment program

TRENTON, N.J. (January 20, 2023) – The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) will hold a virtual information session to provide venture capitalists, private equity investors, and New Jersey startups with information on how they can access capital from the New Jersey Innovation Evergreen Fund (NJIEF). Established by Governor Phil Murphy’s New Jersey Economic Recovery Act of 2020, the NJIEF is a ground-breaking tool designed to grow the state’s innovation economy by catalyzing up to $600 million to support early-stage innovation-focused businesses in New Jersey, while creating mentoring, networking, and educational opportunities to help position these companies for success.

Last month, the NJEDA announced the results of a $50 million tax credit auction, in which established corporations committed funding, technical assistance, and mentorship to help startup businesses in the state. Funds raised through the tax credit auction are expected to help support six to ten high-growth businesses this year.

The information session will be held on January 26th at 9:30 a.m. Register at https://www.njeda.gov/event/njeda-innovation-evergreen-fund-investment-program/. A recorded version of the information session will be posted at http://www.njeda.gov/evergreen following the event.
