The I-Corps Regional Course is funded by the National Science Foundation, run by the Cornell-based UNY I-Corps Node, and taught by experienced entrepreneurs. Using an ‘evidence-based entrepreneurship’ methodology, scientists learn how to develop business hypotheses, test them in interviews with 30 potential customers, and find the best product-market fit for their technology. After successfully completing the course, teams can become eligible to apply to the national NSF I-Corps Teams program where they’ll receive $50,000 to continue their customer discovery process.
