I-Corps Regional Course hosted by University of Pittsburgh - April 2021

Course Overview In this 4.5 week virtual course (April 19 - May 19), researchers working on a deep tech innovation “get out of the lab” and talk with customers (virtually) to identify the best product-market fit. You may apply with a team of 1-3 people. Teams may not split attendance between members. The Team Lead is required to attend and participate fully in every course session. This is important for two reasons: 1) Course learning is cumulative 2) Only team members who personally complete the full course can be considered for NSF lineage and a nomination for national I-Corps Teams
