New Castle County on Thursday introduced NCC Innovates, a business portal (NCCinnovates.com) and grant program to assist start-ups and support the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Statewide and local economic development officials gathered at The Mill in downtown Wilmington to hear both County Executive Matt Meyer and County Economic Development Director Tamarra Morris make the case that NCCinnovates will help pave the way for start-ups to make better decisions based on information.

The grant facet of NCC Innovates can provide funding opportunity for start-ups.

The portal walks the entrepreneur through nine categories of information required to make informed decisions:

– Review of Business Climate

– Discover current Industry Trends

– Research Customer and Prospect demographics, location, and total number

– Analyze Competition

– Identify Land Uses

– Examine the Environment

– Evaluate the available Workforce

– Identify Community Facilities

– Search available Properties

Morris said New Castle County, via NCC Innovates, is supporting entrepreneurship and job creation, focusing on start-ups and small, local businesses.

Without the need for a single phone call, NCCinnovates.com provides market information to help entrepreneurs make “smarter, faster, better decisions,” she said.
