    Description: 
    National Science Foundation Innovation Corps, or "I-Corps," is a course that prepares scientists and engineers to increase the impact of research through commercialization. The program provides funding and guidance for teams to assess their technology’s commercial viability. Successful I-Corps projects are well-positioned to receive future NSF grants designed for more mature technologies, including SBIR and STTR grants. Submit your questions ahead of time, or ask your questions for our panelists live.
