Welcome to I-Corps

If you are a member of an NSF I-Corps team, go here for course information and materials.


I-Corps is a National Science Foundation initiative to increase the economic impact of NSF-funded basic research.

In collaboration with the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA), NSF offers select participants from US academic laboratories the opportunity to participate in a special, accelerated version of Stanford University’s Lean LaunchPad course.

The course engages participants in moving products out of the lab and into the market, through talking to customers, partners and competitors and encountering the chaos and uncertainty of creating successful innovations.
