This online course will help you explore the commercial viability of your STEM-based innovation idea. The Lean The I-Corps Program supports teams through an intensive 7-meeting critical evaluation. Our goal is to help faculty, students, and the community answer important questions about their business, product or technology idea through coaching and direct customer interactions.

  • Conduct at least 21 interviews with potential customers or end users
  • Perform preliminary market research and competitive analysis
  • Present their progress and evolving business idea multiple times
  • Meet with mentors and instructors to receive candid feedback
