Venture Carolina

Submit your idea to the

Innovation Challenge


Deadline Extended to Sep. 1

As part of Taking the Non Out of Nonprofit conference on Sep. 13, a select group of nonprofits will have the opportunity to present their profitable ideas to a panel of investors and funders, modeled after the popular show Shark Tank®. Thanks to the involvement of Bank of America, the application process has been extended until Sep. 1. Once all applications are received, investors and representatives from VentureSouth, one of the nation's largest early stage investment firms, will narrow the pool down to three candidates using their thorough due diligence process. The finalists will then pitch their ideas during the conference on Wednesday, Sep. 13 with the winning nonprofit receiving $5,000 to fund the development and expansion of its effort. All applicants must be registered for the conference before your application will be considered final. If you have any questions, please email Charlie Banks,
