Interest in 21st Century Jobs Fund Competition Low

Very few companies have registered to apply for 21CJF competion

Have you thought about applying for the 21st Century Jobs Fund pool of $30 million and decided not to?  THINK AGAIN.

Only 30 companies have registered so far for the competition.  That’s not much competition.  The word is, apply even if you don’t think you meet all the criteria to the tee.  Sell your business and make your case.  You may (or may not) lose a few points on your score for not meeting one of the criteria points, but you could still end up with enough to convince the SEIC Board to fund your company.

Bottom line: Go For It if you have a compelling story.
