Faculty and students working on STEM-related technology can participate in the I-Corps program and receive up to $3,000 to participate in the customer discovery process of their innovation. The University of Utah I-Corps Site offers 1 cohort a year on a rolling submission application cycle. Each team is supported with an I-Corps grant of up to $3,000 to cover travel and prototyping costs. The program consists of 9 workshops over the fall and spring semester, where teams work to validate the market size, value propositions, and customer segments of their innovations.
When you Finish
Upon completion of the program, teams are in position to apply to the National I-Corps program where they receive $50,000 dollars and participate in a rigorous 7 week program, or perhaps apply for an SBIR award.
