Bay Area I-Corps course and grant
University faculty, startups, or teams with a startup idea are encouraged to apply for a one-week course based on Steve Blank's Lean LaunchPad method offered by the Bay Area Regional I-Corps Node.
The course is focused on improving your value propositions and customer segments. These areas of your business model are essential to minimizing risk and ensuring that your product satisfies market demand. The course requires a team of two to three people. Teams that achieve instructor endorsement after course completion may qualify for the National I-Corps program which includes a $30,000 or $50,000 grant for customer discovery.
If you have a technology-based startup idea, contact Cara Baird with Enterprise & Innovation to learn more about the program and discuss the application process.
