The UAF Center for Innovation, Commercialization, and Entrepreneurship is looking for the next round of teams to join its National Science Foundation-funded Innovation Corps site program.

This program provides team members with training, connections to develop a mentor network of seasoned entrepreneurs, and funds the team’s customer discovery process. Participation in Innovation Corps gives team members the skills to accelerate transition of tech out of lab, and trains scientists, engineers, and researchers in startup best practices. Participants will learn how to get customer feedback before building and launching products/businesses and develop an evidence-based commercialization strategy and plan. Center ICE is looking for its next cohort of teams to go through the highly-experiential, approximately six-week-long program.

Interested? Find more information at Center ICE’s I-Corps website or apply directly in Fall 2021. The new cohort of teams will likely start the program at the end of September or early October.
