Over 400 member representatives attended the event. Joseph Carr, CEO of local highefficiency solar module manufacturer Semprius, was the keynote speaker for the evening. The company designs and manufactures the smallest and highest efficiency solar modules in the world. Using patented cell technology and stateof-the-art manufacturing processes, Semprius is leading the way to costcompetitive, sustainable generation of solar electricity. Carr was instrumental in the design and innovation of this technology. In his address, Carr talked about the Chamber celebrating 75 years of service to the community and the people who had the “vision” to better their community by forming it. “Vision without action is merely

But while very few reach that honorable goal, the 2012 Citizen of the Year goes above and beyond in the volunteering of time, talent and resources and greatly exceeds the high standard of putting service above self,” Wilson continued.

Small Business Administration licenses first fund in early stage capital initiative Hatteras Venture Partners of Durham is the first licensee in the Early Stage Innovation Funds initiative, a part of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Small Business Investment Company capital investment program. Hatteras Venture Partners (hatterasvp. com), a venture capital firm based in Research Triangle Park focuses on seed and early stage opportunities in biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostics, and related opportunities in human medicine. HVP was selected because it demonstrated that it has a strong team with a clear, focused strategy and a track record investing in an undercapitalized region. “The new year is the perfect time to celebrate new businesses and win-win opportunities like the Early Stage Initiative,” said administrator Karen Mills of Small Business Administration. “The Early Stage Innovation Funds initiative promotes American innovation and job creation by encouraging private sector investment in early stage small businesses. And by licensing funds like Hatteras Venture Partners IV, we can expand entrepreneurs’ access to capital at no cost to taxpayers.” High-growth, early stage companies commonly experience a gap in the availability of funding between $1 million and $4 million levels. This gap is often referred to in the venture capital industry as the “Valley of Death.” Since January 2006, less than 10 percent of all U.S. venture capital dollars went to seed funds investing at those levels, and approximately 70 percent of those dollars went to just three states: California, Massachusetts, and New York. The Early Stage Innovation Funds initiative targets this gap by licensing and guaranteeing leverage to funds focused on early/seed stage investments. SBA’s improved licensing times under its Small Business Investment Company debenture program complement the Early Stage Innovation Funds initiative. The administration has committed up to $1 billion in SBA-guaranteed leverage over a five-year period for selected Early Stage Innovation Funds using its current Small

Business Investment Company program authorization. Licensed Early Stage Innovation Funds can receive up to a maximum of $50 million in SBA-guaranteed funding to match their privately raised capital. Early Stage Innovation Funds must invest at least 50 percent of their investment dollars in early stage small businesses. Recently, the administration called for applications from fund managers for year two of the five-year initiative. The deadline for filing the Management Application Questionnaires for year two of the Early Stage Innovation Fund program is March 1, 2013, at 5 p.m. EST. Application details are in the call notice published in the Federal Register: federalregister.gov/ articles/2012/12/18/2012-30431/smallbusiness-investment-companies-earlystage-sbics. These companies are privately-owned and managed investment firms that are licensed and regulated by the administration. They use a combination of funds raised from private sources and money raised through the use of administration guarantees to make equity and mezzanine capital investments in small businesses. There are nearly 300 of these companies with more than $18 billion in capital under management. More information on the Early Stage Innovation Funds initiative and the regulations governing these company may be found at sba.gov/inv/earlystage. For more information about the administration’s investment division, Small Business Investment Company program, Impact Investment Initiative and Early Stage Innovation Funds, go to sba.gov/INV. The web site offers much useful information including segments for: SBIC applicants, SBIC licensees, private partners and LPs, and entrepreneurs and small business owners. The site also includes useful Small Business Investment Company forms, up-to-date news and reports, and detailed information and descriptions of the Impact Investment Initiative and Early Stage Innovation Fund.

Tucker is also an active church member who serves in the church Sunday school ministry, the music ministry, and as a deacon. Additional service to God and community is demonstrated by weekly driving of a church van to pick up children from area schools and carry them to the church’s discipleship and children’s choir programs. With a strong belief that there is no profession more vital than the teaching of our children because their young minds do indeed hold the future, Tucker is a strong advocate of educators and strong champion for the mission and success of the Vance County School Foundation. He has participated in the North Carolina Senior Games and many National tennis competitions. While playing in the 2007 regional finals competition in Kentucky, Tucker and a doubles partner learned of a medical emergency of another player. Using their CPR expertise, they eventually revived the cardiac arrest victim. The nomination letter that told this story continued, “I mention this, not because our nominee would ever seek recognition for this heroic act, but rather to demonstrate that involved people, like our nominee, put themselves in the position to not only enjoy life but to also be of benefit and service to others in unique circumstances.” Finally, one letter said of Tucker, “An ideal citizen, as quoted by respected author,

The event is well-supported by the

local community and we’re happy to host it” said Chamber president John Barnes. The Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce coordinated the event which was brought to the community by Presenting Sponsor CenturyLink, Platinum Sponsors Progress Energy and P&G Pet Care, Gold Sponsors Walmart Distribution Center #6091 and Maria Parham Medical Center and Silver Sponsor Satterwhite Point Marina.
