WHAT IS I-Corps™?
Innovation Corps (I-Corps™) uses proven customer-discovery methodologies for startups. It was developed for academic researchers by serial entrepreneurs working with the National Science Foundation. It has been used to train hundreds of teams of innovators across the nation.
I-Corps@UM-CTSI is a team-based, short course designed specifically for our faculty, staff, post-doctoral associates and students. The program guides teams through the early stages of customer discovery where they can test the business model hypotheses for their technology or idea.
I-Corps participants gain new insights into:
- Patient Work Flow/Care Management
- Customers / Customer Segments
- Value Propositions
- Data quality
- Roles of industry / partners
New insights can have a dramatic affect on the aims of a current or future project around the technology. All University of Miami faculty, staff, post-doctoral associates or students with a discovery or innovation idea are welcome.
