About NSF I-Corps and IN-LA:
The I-Corps™ program was created by the NSF in 2011 to help move academic research it has funded to market, and offers entrepreneurship training to student and faculty participants. Teams qualified for the National Program can apply for $50k grants focused on customer discovery and on identifying the problem-solution and product market fit for emerging technology. Innovation Node LA offers a number of programs that groom teams for qualification for the national program. The LA Node program also provides the teams with the required NSF lineage for the I-Corps application, regardless of the project’s original funding source.
Available office hours with Steve Konsek, Azar Nazeri, and Melihe Taciroglu: please indicate interest on RSVP form.
