Do you have a new business or product Idea?
Is it STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) related?
The I-Corps Site experience is a crash course for researchers, students (all levels), alumni and non-academics to encourage technical entrepreneurship by testing research, projects and ideas for their commercial potential.
This program emphasizes getting out of the lab/office and interviewing potential customers, partners, and investors. Anyone who wants to start a new business or has a new product idea is welcome to be a part of this program.
However, teams with a STEM-related business or product who finish the program in its entirety will receive up to $3000 as a micro grant. Completing the program grants eligibility to apply for the National NSF I-Corps program ($50K for customer discovery and/or prototyping).
The curriculum focuses on agile innovation tied to customer discovery and makes use of mentors to supplement the program. Participants are NOT required to have previous experience in business or entrepreneurship.
