Join us as Christina Pellicane, Lead Instructor for the NSF I-Corps Hub Northeast Region and Assistant Director of Innovation at Princeton University, takes us through the I-Corps program. This is a great way for deep tech companies to interview customers, organize their business model canvas, and advance towards product market fit.
I-Corps provides instruction and non-dilutive funding to visit customers and trade shows ($3k at the regional level and $50k at the national level).
The program started in translational research and has expanded beyond academia to include community teams. Roughly 3,000 teams have gone through the national program.
