What is NSF I-CorpsTM?
NSF Innovation Corps (I‐Corps) provides $50,000 grants to NSF-funded researchers to identify valuable commercial applications for their technology, and offers entrepreneurial training to participating teams. The program provides research tools, skills, and resources you need to turn your research into a startup venture.
