The New Jersey Economic Development Authority has created the $3 million NJ CoVest Fund, which will provide growth capital to early-stage technology and life sciences companies.

“In addition to the state’s renowned higher education and university research systems, New Jersey is now home to more than 22 coworking facilities, 11 incubators, and six accelerators, creating an influx of opportunities to help early-stage companies grow,” EDA CEO Melissa Orsen said. “The NJ CoVest Fund will help to ensure that we are able to retain these innovative companies in the Garden State by providing them with the capital they need to commercialize new technologies and scale commercial revenues.”

Under the $3 million fund, companies will be eligible for between $100,000 and $250,000; NJ CoVest funds must be matched $2 of external funding from private, outside investors for every $1 funding requested from the Fund. Up to $250,000 of funding per company may be available. CoVest funds will feature three percent interest and 10-year maturity, with no payments due for the first seven years.

Product-based companies in the technology or life sciences industries are eligible, and there is a list of other requirements. For more information, visit www.njeda.com/njcovest.
