DC I-Corps™

DC I-Corps
Calling All GW Innovators & Researchers!

I-Corps is a National Science Foundation program designed to foster, grow and nurture innovation ecosystems regionally and nationally.

The program provides real world, hands-on training on how to successfully incorporate innovations into successful products. The ultimate goal is to create a new venture or licensing opportunity for program participants, and to learn the valuable process of business model generation and customer discovery.

GW offers Regional Introductory Courses to introduce the GW community to the I-Corps program.

All GW professors, research staff, post docs, graduate students, and undergraduate students with potentially commercializable research or technology-based business ideas are eligible to participate. Both the regional and national programs are free, with $2,000 - $50,000 support funding provided to accepted teams.
