A team accepted into the U.S. National Science Foundation’s I-Corps National Teams training program is eligible to be awarded up to $50,000, which supports the team’s program participation including stipends and expenses for virtual and in-person customer discovery.

Throughout this program, teams engage with prospective customers, partners, and others in the ecosystem—evaluating the commercial potential for turning their technologies into successful products, processes and services. The virtual kickoff sessions for the Winter 2 Cohort will take place during the week of February 3, 2025.
