NSF I-Corps™ is a 3-week course designed to enable teams of scientists, engineers, and researchers to understand the potential value of their technology and inventions to society, by teaching participants how to assess the market opportunity for new technology and commercial potential. Teams of three complete the course and receive a $50,000 grant to determine the commercial potential of their innovation

What is I-Corps?
The I-Corps™ program was created by the NSF in 2011 to help move academic research it has funded to market. Through a dynamic collaboration with VentureWell, the NSF offers select participants from US academic laboratories the opportunity to participate in a special, accelerated version of Stanford University’s Lean LaunchPad course. This revolutionary course engages participants in moving products out of the lab and into the market by talking to potential customers, partners and competitors and encountering the challenges and uncertainty of creating successful innovations.
What is the Southwest I-Corps?
Supports and connects young scientists, leading faculty and the greater business community across the Texas and Southwest region in testing their funded research for potential commercial applications through national and regional I-Corps™ programming.
Southwest I-Corps™ is part of the National Innovation Network (NIN), a national network of NSF-funded researchers from I-Corps™ Teams, I-Corps™ Nodes, and I-Corps™ Sites. Working together, this network of thinkers addresses America’s needs for innovation education, infrastructure, and research.
