Information session
Monday, June 6 at 12 p.m. ET

The NSF-I-Corps Hub Northeast Hub can help you chart the path of your research from the discovery stage to a startup or venture. Our 4-session training programs help researchers explore how their scientific or technological discovery can meet the needs of people and industries. Our Hub is open to all academic researchers in the Northeast and is dedicated to inclusive innovation.

In the I-Corps program, researchers form teams focused on identifying how their scientific or technological discovery meets customer needs. Teams can include faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students and undergraduates.

Benefits of the program include:
TRAINING: Four sessions introduce the I-Corps Lean LaunchPad approach to evaluating technologies through customer-discovery research, focused on identifying the technology’s potential for development in a startup or other venture.

FUNDING: Grants of up to $3,000 are provided to each team and can be used to fund customer-discovery research and expenses such as conference attendance and marketing tools.

RESOURCES: Teams will receive mentorship from seasoned entrepreneurs and innovators. Teams may also access other programs offered by Hub-affiliated institutions.

FOLLOW-ON OPPORTUNITIES: Upon completion, teams are eligible for the national NSF I-Corps Teams program which provides an intensive 7-week training course and a $50,000 grant.
