Welcome to the I-Corps™ at NIH Training Program!

Based on the highly successful NSF I-Corps™ program, the I-Corps™ at NIH curriculum is designed to provide scientists from NIH SBIR funded companies with real-world, hands-on entrepreneurship training facilitated by domain experts from the biotech sector. It is designed to accelerate the translation of your innovation from the lab to clinical practice.

The I-Corps™ at NIH training environment is fast-paced and rigorous; you will be pushed, challenged and questioned so that you and your team ultimately will have an enhanced understanding and validation of the key components of your Business Model Canvas, significantly refined commercialization plans, and well-informed "pivots" in your overall commercialization strategy.
