Opportunities for Faculty and Researchers
“Clean Tech I-Corps” provides faculty and students with an in-depth understanding of the commercialization process, intimate knowledge of markets applicable to their research and can help to build value for transformational ideas. This program requires the team to attend a 2 day in-person course in NYC, attend 3 weekly webinars, and finally attend a 2 day in-person presentation of their discoveries in NYC (see dates below). Most importantly, the teams are required to “get out of the building” and conduct customer discovery by interviewing potential customers to identify the clean technology’s product/market fit.
If you are interested in organizing a team for submission to the NYC Regional Innovation Node & PowerBridgeNY Clean Tech I-Corps cohort please complete the following application. Submissions are due May 15, 2015.
