National Science Foundation Innovation Corps Fall Regional
October 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - October 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Fall Regional will be held at the University of Tennessee from October 3 – 19, 2017. This intensive two-week program is designed by I-Corps South to help individuals who are interested in commercializing their research to build a business model that addresses their customers’ needs. The curriculum will cover the customer discovery process, developing a value proposition, and creating a business plan. The program also serves as an informal kick-off for UT’s participation in the I-Corps South Node, one of eight regional networks developed to support innovation education, infrastructure, and research.
Instructors for the program include UT’s Shawn Carson, the University of Tennessee Research Foundation’s (UTRF) Maha Krishnamurthy, and two instructors from I-Corps National.
