DC I-CORPS (INNOVATION CORPS)
DC I-Corps is a new, NSF-supported program designed to foster, grow and nurture an innovation ecosystem in the Mid- Atlantic Region and is now accepting applications for its fall cohort, beginning on October 9.
Open to research teams and technology entrepreneurs from universities, federal laboratories, agencies and the general community, the free program guides researchers in exploring the commercial potential of their inventions. The program is geared towards innovations coming from engineering fields, medical/health/life sciences, and physical and computer sciences. DC I-Corps builds upon the successful National Science Foundation (NSF) I-Corps program.
Teams that successfully complete the I-Corps training program will be eligible to apply for the Accelerator. The Accelerator provides access to an extensive network of regional mentors and resources, and helps startup teams progress through various phases on the path to building a successful company.
