Event Description
Introductory training to learn how to change your focus from the science / technology to the people it benefits and more!

Lunch will be provided - please RSVP no later than 6/7.

Learn about the impact your research or innovation could have in solving real-world problems by attending our Novus I-Corps Program at Princeton University, a half-day introduction to I-Corps, co-sponsored by the Northeast I-Corps Hub!

The Novus I-Corps @ Princeton University program provides an opportunity for individuals and teams with innovations to:

- Shift the mindset from science and technology to the learning about the people it could benefit
- Understand how Customer Discovery drives innovation (and gets you out of the building!)
- Meet local I-Corps Program Leaders and Tech Transfer Officers to guide your journey
- Learn tips for success from an I-Corps alumni Panel sharing their experience
- (Optional) Network with others to form teams

Who Should Attend (Individuals and teams from all Princeton University campuses are invited):

- Princeton University faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students and/or undergraduates who are developing a scientific or technical discovery.
- Individuals who want to learn how innovation happens at Princeton University and potentially join a team
- Student Organization / Program leaders who want to learn more about how I-Corps can benefit their members


TRAINING: Three-hour training introducing the I-Corps Lean LaunchPad approach to evaluating technologies through customer-discovery research, focused on identifying the technology’s potential for development in a startup or other venture.
NETWORKING: Build relationships with local I-Corps program leaders to get guidance and support. Individuals can form teams to be eligible to apply for the Regional I-Corps program.
PREPARATION: Attendees will be prepared to begin a journey of Customer Discovery with their own team or with a team they newly created.
FOLLOW-ON OPPORTUNITIES: Attendees can be fast-tracked to the 4-week Regional I-Corps Program in Cohort 10 or 11 ($3,000 NSF grant to do Customer Discovery)
