Applications for the next I-Corps Short Course class at Binghamton University are currently being accepted. Instruction will consist of three class at the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator in downtown Binghamton on April 13, 14, and 28, as well as two remote meetings.

I-Corps is a National Science Foundation (NSF) program designed to help researchers and scientists transition their projects from the lab to the marketplace. Binghamton’s second cohort, consisting of seven local teams, completed the two-week program in February.

The course curriculum introduces participants to the Business Model Canvas, a template used by start-up companies to assess whether there’s a product-market fit. In short, does the product fill an unmet need in the market, and does sufficient demand exist?

Binghamton University is one of six I-Corps sites in New York State.

Another class will be welcomed to the program in October. Applications for that round can be found here. To read more about the I-Corps program and Binghamton University’s most recent class, click here.
