The National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps™) program uses experiential education to help researchers gain valuable insight into entrepreneurship, starting a business, or industry requirements and challenges.
I-Corps facilitates the transformation of inventions into impact. The curriculum integrates scientific inquiry and industrial discovery in an inclusive, data-driven culture led by rigor, relevance, and evidence. Through I-Corps training, researchers can reduce the time to translate a promising idea from the laboratory to the marketplace.
