About the I-Corps Program

The National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (NSF I-Corps) is an effort to develop scientific and engineering discoveries into useful products and services. The I-Corps program, a public-private partnership, connects NSF-funded research with the tech, entrepreneur and business communities to create a stronger ecosystem for innovation. The I-Corps program teaches NSF grantees to identify valuable product opportunities that can emerge from academic research and offers entrepreneurship training to student participants. I-Corps is a public-private partnership that prepares you to extend your focus beyond the laboratory by broadening the impact of NSF-funded basic-research projects. The primary goal of I-Corps is to foster entrepreneurship that will lead to the commercialization of technology that has been supported by NSF-funded research.
