Have a great idea? With all non-essential research suspended and shelter-at-home in place, NSF I-Corps is the perfect opportunity to focus on market research and quickly validate your idea. NSF I-Corps is a four week, immersive boot camp that guides researchers through the market research process to help them product-market fit.

I-Corps is designed to help you:
- Kick start your innovation with up to $2000 in funding for customer discovery
- Successfully translate university research to technologies in the market
