Course Description

Entrepreneurially-minded graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and local community teams are invited to join the next Great Lakes Region NSF I-Corps Hub cohort. The site program offered through Michigan Tech is structured around the lean startup teaching methods and principles used by NSF’s National I-Corps Program. The purpose of the NSF-funded I-Corps Hub Program is to foster entrepreneurship that will lead to the commercialization of technology and to develop team readiness for the teams going on to the I-Corps National I-Corps program.

Course Benefits

Michigan Tech and affiliate institution teams who complete the five-week workshop and customer discovery process may be eligible to apply for the following opportunities:

  • Mini-grant funding for continued customer discovery
  • NSF’s National I-Corps program which includes $50,000 in funding and additional training

Participation in the program can lead to qualification for research and other funding from several granting agencies, including the NSF I-Corps and SBIR/STTR/PFI programs and various state and regional programs. Past participants have reported that they saved time and money by better understanding potential applications of their technology, experienced improved engagement with teams, and improved their ability to receive add-on funding.
