The NSF I-Corps Upstate New York (UNY) Node is offering a Short Course program for researchers interested in exploring the market potential of their work and learning entrepreneurial skills. Short Courses, geared toward doctoral candidates, post-docs and faculty, are offered at no cost to participants and consist of both in-person and remote meetings over a two-week period. If you work with a team, the whole team can participate in the Short Course. At the end of the program, teams will have conducted customer interviews, learned about the business model canvas, and will have clear plans for taking the next steps. Short Course graduates will have the opportunity to be recommended for the NSF I-Corps National Teams program, which offers grant awards of up to $50,000. Previous NSF funding is NOT required to apply. The Short Course kicks off at theUniversity of Rochester’s Bloch Alumni and Advancement Center on Friday, November 3; includes two conference calls from 2 to 3:30 pm on Wednesdays, November 8 and 15; and concludes on Friday, November 17. The program is limited to 10 teams and will be taught by Mike Riedlinger of High Tech Rochester. Apply online today!
