In early 2013, ARPA-E partnered with the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a pilot program that put several ARPA-E project teams through the rigorous Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program curriculum. I-Corps guides research teams through an iterative customer and business model discovery process aimed at identifying a path to market for early-stage technologies.Join us for an informative discussion about the I-Corps process and its value to researchers. ARPA-E Program Director and Senior Commercialization Advisor Dr. Ilan Gur moderates this session featuring first-hand accounts by Dr. Babu DasGupta, NSF I-Corps Program Officer, and Dr. Jonathan Fay, Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan’s Center for Entrepreneurship.
