Before you get started, there are a few things you should be aware of to make the application process as simple as possible.

  • In order to fully complete the online application, you must have consulted with an EDA Venture Officer. Your Venture Officer can guide you through the application process and can answer any questions you may have.
  • If you have not consulted with a Venture Officer, please call the EDA Customer Care at (609) 858-6767 or email
  • In order to complete your online application, you must register for an account with a username and password. Your username and password will allow you the flexibility to complete your application at your convenience.
  • As you complete your application, you may email a draft of your application to your Venture Officer should you require feedback prior to submitting.
  • All fields are mandatory, but can be completed with a ‘NA’ if you do not have the requested information at the time of application or if the question does not apply.
  • Depending on the nature of your project/business, your Venture Officer may request additional information after receipt of your application.
