What Will Be Expected of Me and My Team?

I-Corps Teams must be prepared to commit 10-15 hours per week beyond their usual academic responsibilities.

Teams must conduct interviews with potential customers and industry insiders to help refine their business ideas.


All members of a Team must attend weekly I-Corps evening meetings in person over the eight-week period, where they will provide updates and:

  • Discuss how the Team’s business model changed due to new information gained from customer discussions in the prior week.
  • Resolve any questions from video assignments designed to teach the LEAN business model canvas method.
  • Get feedback from other teams on and assess the business model canvases of other teams in a dynamic group learning environment.

No prior business experiences is required to participate. All students, faculty, staff and alumni are encouraged to apply.
