I-Corps Empowers Alaskan Innovators
October 5, 2020
The Center ICE Foundational I-Corps program offers a six-week course based on Steve Blank's Lean LaunchPad (Business Model Canvas + Customer Discovery).
Alaska teams are awarded a $2,000 – 3,500 grant to cover customer discovery-related costs, and upon successful completion may qualify for the National I-Corps program which includes a $30k or $50k grant for customer discovery.Two facilitated sessions plus office hours will teach you to identify and refine your value propositions and customer segments, which are essential to de-risking your idea and achieving idea-market fit.
A sample of previous Alaskan I-Corps teams includes:
- Aquagga(Launch Alaska 2020 cohort)
- Ramper Innovations(Alaska Angel Conference Winner 2019)
- Keeni Water(Geeks in the Woods 2019)
