Event Details

A variety of private programs are in place to assist early-stage innovators in successfully transitioning their technology out of a lab and into an early-stage company. The National Science Foundation (NSF) supports disruptive innovation with the non-dilutive SBIR/STTR program. As an earlier-phase extension of that support, the NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) assists innovators in defining the value of their invention to the market by engaging in a rigorous business model and customer discovery process. During this event we will hear from I-Corps and NSF representatives, and from the CEOs of startup companies who have participated in I-Corps programs and subsequently gone on to receive federal funding via the NSF. Speakers will discuss their experiences leveraging these types of programs to build their early stage ventures.
