Nebraska I-Corps: Introduction to Customer Discovery (ICD) – Spring 2024 Cohort
February 26 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm CSTFree
Could your idea eventually become a product or a service? Are you interested in bringing new perspectives to your research program? Do you want to consider starting a business? Join us for Nebraska I-Corps, a campus entrepreneurship training program led by NUtech Ventures.
Through the Lean Launch method, you’ll learn about value propositions, stakeholder ecosystems, interviewing prospective customers, and more. You’ll get to interview people in your field and learn which problems are important to them — and then consider what that means for your solution.
This seven-week program includes large group training sessions taught by NSF I-Corps-trained coaches, featuring interactive course content and practice in small groups. You’ll also take part in one-on-one office hours with trained facilitators from various entrepreneurship ecosystem resource providers, such as NUtech Ventures, UNL Extension, Invest Nebraska, and the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC).
The free, non-credit training program is open to all faculty, staff and students at UNL and UNK. If you are not affiliated with the university but have a recommendation from an instructor or former participant, please let us know who referred you on your application. Due to limited program capacity, we will review your application and notify you if you are accepted.
Each participant is required to attend all four main sessions (2.5 hours each) and a minimum of three office hours (30 minutes each); each team must also complete a minimum of 25 stakeholder interviews on their own time.
