Binghamton University Entrepreneurship and Innovation is offering a fall NSF I-corps short course
The NSF I-Corps program is for undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff with research-based concepts looking to progress their research. Research can originate from student work, research (funded or unfunded), institutional, or industrial projects. National Science Foundation resources combine with Binghamton University's to provide infrastructure, advice, networking opportunities, training and funding to bring research from the lab to market.
Through the use of short-courses, the NSF I-Corps program will determine potential customers for specific research and explore the business model canvas to understand the viability of launching a startup. Upon completion of the I-Corps program, participants are eligible to apply for the NSF I Corps Team National program (an intensive 6-week NSF training with the opportunity to be awarded a $50,000 grant) as well as many other funding opportunities.
The program will run from September 20 - October 20. Participants who complete the program are eligible to apply for $3,000 in additional funding to further their customer discovery efforts that will help them get their technology to market. Act now, the deadline is fast approaching!
The deadline to apply is September 14. Please fill out the application and you will be contacted regarding acceptance. For questions regarding this course, please contact Fabiola Moreno.
