USF I-Corps Team Application

I-Corps at USF is a program that teaches university entrepreneurs to identify valuable product opportunities that can emerge from academic research, and offers entrepreneurship training to participants. A full team consists of a PI/Technical Lead, Entrepreneurial Team Lead (student or post-doc), and Business Mentor. If you don't have a Business Mentor, you only need to include information for the team members you do have, and we will actively work with you to pair you with a Business Mentor. You will need to have a full team before participating or moving on to the selection process.

It is expected that the USF I-Corps Site participants will complete a 6-week workshop course. The workshops are held on 6 Mondays, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. In-person attendance at each session is mandatory.

At the conclusion of the I-Corps Site program and workshop, you will have a stronger understanding of the market opportunity, product and market validation, the path to market for your technology, and the overall competitive landscape. Participation in the I-Corps program could lead to potential outcomes ranging from significant industry contacts, ongoing research, opportunities for commercialization funding, and a "go/no go" decision to form a company.

Preference will be given to teams with the passion, motivation, and resources.
