What It's All About

The National Science Foundation (NSF) I-Corps program prepares scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the university laboratory and accelerates the economic and societal benefits of NSF-funded, basic-research projects that are ready to move toward commercialization. Through I-Corps, NSF grantees learn to identify valuable product opportunities that can emerge from academic research, and gain skills in entrepreneurship through training in customer discovery and guidance from established entrepreneurs.

In this webinar, we’ll explore how universities can join the National Innovation Network by becoming I-Corps Sites or Nodes, and how academic researchers can take advantage of the $50,000 I-Corps Teams grant and training program.

You'll Learn How To:

  • Describe the NSF I-Corps program to your inventors.
  • Leverage the NSF I-Corps program to determine the market viability of IP at your university.
  • Participate in the National Innovation Network.
