NYCRIN I-Corps 2015 Application Deadline

Workshop
 
For NYU Community

Do you have a great technology concept?  Want to commercialize it?  Learn how by going through the same course taught to NSF I-CorpsTM teams.

Submit your application today! Deadline is September 11, 2015.

Apply online here or submit the attached PDF to info@nycrin.org.

The NYC Regional Innovation Node (NYCRIN) will be offering the same NSF I-CorpsTM experiential learning program, which uses Lean LaunchPad pedagogy and the Business Model Canvas, to train academic researchers in hypothesis-driven customer discovery.  Please see the attached flyer.

NYCRIN I-Corps provides a way for regional (any team from NY, NJ, PA, CT and the surrounding area) students and faculty to participate in I-Corps training without being NSF-funded.  The curriculum will closely follow that of the NSF I-CorpsTM program and focus on commercializing research via a startup venture.

This program will be free for admitted applicant teams. Application deadline is September 11, 2015. The course is October-November (see dates below) and is open to any academic researcher.   Please see the attached application form.

Proposers will identify a project team that minimally consists of:

  1. The principal investigator (who can actively participate or participate as an advisor and not attend the courses);
  2. An entrepreneurial lead (who is committed to investigate the landscape surrounding the innovation);
  3. A mentor (who understands the evidence concerning promise, e.g., from an institutional education-focused center or commercial background that will help inform the efforts).

The outcomes of the projects are expected to be threefold:

  • A clear go/no go decision concerning the viability and effectiveness of the learning-oriented resources/products, practices and services.
  • An implementation "product" and process for potential partners/adopters.
  • A transition plan to move the effort forward and bring the innovation to scale.
