In this 4.5 week virtual course (February 7 - March 9), researchers working on a deep tech innovation “get out of your comfort zone” 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. Please only include the members of your team that will be fully participating in the course. All team members are required to attend and participate fully in every course session and complete all coursework. 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
