I-Corps Sites

The I-Corps Sites program enables academic institutions to catalyze teams whose technology concepts are likely candidates for commercialization. The make-up of teams at the Sites is modeled after the composition of I-Corps Teams, and education at the Sites shares the principles of the I-Corps Curriculum.

I-Corps Sites will provide infrastructure, advice, resources, networking opportunities, training and modest funding to enable groups to transition their work into the marketplace or into becoming I-Corps Team applicants. With the support and mentorship of the Sites, the teams will learn first-hand about entrepreneurship and explore the transition of their ideas, devices, processes or other intellectual activities into the marketplace.

The I-Corps Sites will strengthen innovation locally and contribute to the National Innovation Network of mentors, researchers, entrepreneurs and investors.


A full description of the NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Sites, I-Corps proposal instructions and other essential information are available in the I-Corps Sites solicitation.

A short description of the ways I-Corps Sites contribute to the National Innovation Network is available, as well as an I-Corps Sites Factsheet (PDF, 357 KB).
