I-Corps Overview

I-Corps is a National Science Foundation funded program that is managed by the Innovation and Research Engagement team. The program provides coaching for faculty, students and staff to help evaluate the market opportunity associated with a research product or service. We provide teams $2,000 allocation for travel to industry focused conferences and work with them directly to develop and refine a testable value proposition associated with their marker offering. As of fall 2021, the program has helped teams secure over $6 million in prize money and follow-on funding for their business opportunities. 

We would like to thank our partners for their support and contribution.
