RALEIGH, NC – The North Carolina Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC), a business advisory service of the University of North Carolina System, has been awarded one of three Energy Efficiency and Clean Technology Program (EECT) grants by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) which supplements existing SBA funding support to the SBTDC.
The SBTDC helps small businesses as they strive to commercialize innovative technologies and services, including “green” technologies. This three-year award will allow the SBTDC’s Technology Commercialization Services team to expand through hiring specialized staff across the state to meet the needs of this growing industry sector. Funds from the SBA grant are being matched by support from the NC Rural Economic Development Center, Progress Energy, and Duke Energy.
The NC EECT program will be led by Dr. Paul Ulanch, SBTDC Director of Technology Commercialization Services. Dr. Ulanch successfully acquired this and additional SBA funding support for the Federal and State Technology (FAST) partnership program during his four-year tenure
