NSF I-Corps Short Courses
Our partners at Cornell's Center for Regional Economic Advancement, site of the Upstate NY I-Corps Node, are offering a short course at Cornell Sept. 15-29 to learn about the key steps to take a technology from lab to market. There's an in-person kick-off, 2 weeks of remote work with weekly check-ins, and in-person wrap up that will connect you to the national innovation network of the NSF which can lead to $50k of support. You can apply as a team lead or to join a team. Either way, contact Bonnie Sanborn <email@example.com> or firstname.lastname@example.org to find a personalized good fit. Learn more. Let us know if you apply!
A limited number of teams are admitted to each I-Corps Short Course to allow for the best interaction with the instructors. Courses are free to attend, and you do not need current/prior NSF funding to participate. Your team can attend a Short Course at any convenient location.
