NSF I-Corps

Company/Organization profile

The goal of the NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps™) program, created in 2011 by NSF, has been and will continue to be to reduce the time and risk associated with translating promising ideas and technologies from the laboratory to the marketplace. I-Corps uses experiential learning of customer and industry discovery, coupled with first-hand investigation of industrial processes, to quickly assess the translational potential of inventions.

The I-Corps program is designed to support the commercialization of so-called “deep technologies,” or those revolving around fundamental discoveries in science and engineering. The I-Corps program addresses the skill and knowledge gap associated with the transformation of basic research into “deep technology ventures” (DTVs).
