Our Partners

The PTP NEXT Business Competition is the brainchild of PTP NEXT and the Piedmont Triad Partnership, working in partnership with NC IDEA, a private non-profit that has provided an excess of $2 million in seed grants to 57+ young technology companies across North Carolina since 2006. Our goal is to reach out to the full range of Piedmont Triad entrepreneurial companies with novel product or service ideas to encourage eligible entrepreneurs to compete for these grants.
