Summary

  • Innovation Corps is a program developed by the National Science Foundation where university scientists and students learn entrepreneurial skills that enable them to take their research be­yond the laboratory and discover the commercial potential of their innovation.
  • I-Corps Sites, located at several universities, offer shortened curricula to qualify teams for participation in the national I-Corps program (NSF I-Corps Teams).

  • The core topics covered in I-Corps Sites’ curricula teach teams about the importance of cus­tomer discovery; the teams are expected to leave the lab and personally interview 20+ potential customers to determine their product-market fit.
