The goal of the Pre-Seed/Seed Plus Fund Capitalization Program (PFCP) is to increase the availability of professionally managed capital and associated services to accelerate the growth of early-stage Ohio technology companies. The PFCP provides loans to capitalize funds that have attracted the support of other non-state investors. Funds capitalized by the program are expected to target investments to pre-seed technology-based businesses.

NOTE: Section 2.3.1 of the RFP ("Subject Matter") will be updated in the near future to include "Agribusiness and Food Processing" and "Shale" as eligible technology areas. (Updated 7/20/15)
