The NSF I-Corps program is a cross-cutting, interdisciplinary grant program that is focused on preparing scientists and engineers to go beyond the laboratory and increase the economic impact of their basic research projects. For more information about program requirements, please see the links:

The six week I-Corps program helps three person teams consisting of a PI (previously funded NSF researcher), entrepreneurial lead (graduate or post-doc student) and business mentor evaluate the product-market fit of technologies prior to commercialization. Selected teams will receive a $50,000 grant from the NSF to support travel, early prototyping efforts, and student support related to I-Corps program activities.
