The WSU I-Corps program currently is seeking applications for its fall 2018 cohort.
I-Corps is an National Science Foundation funded program “prepares scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the university laboratory, and accelerates the economic and societal benefits of NSF-funded, basic-research projects that are ready to move toward commercialization.”
The program, available statewide via Academic Media Services, provides training and funding for teams to better understand how their solution fits in the marketplace and improve the prospects of attracting funding.
In the 18 months WSU I-Corps has been running, its graduates have obtained over $1.2 million in funding for technology development.
Applications are due by Friday, Sept. 7.
