The NIH and CDC are pleased to offer small businesses the opportunity to participate in I-Corps at NIH in 2016.

Apply by March 21, 2016 (2nd cohort)

The NIH will host a webinar with companies who have already gone through this entrepreneurial immersion course. Course participants will be available to answer your questions in this interactive webinar event.

Following the success of the 2014 pilot cohort, NIH is offering this entrepreneurial training program across 14 Institute/Centers at the NIH and CDC to support NIH/CDC SBIR/STTR funded small businesses to accelerate the translation of innovations from the lab to clinical practice.

For a deeper review of I-Corps programmatic information from our November 12, 2015 webinar, please visit the archived material here.

The I-Corpsat NIH, part of President Obamas Strategy for Innovation, is modeled after the successful I-Corps™ at NSF and will be leveraged to support biomedical innovation and translation, with the goal of expediting the development and commercialization of a range of technologies to address the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. I-Corps™ participants will receive lessons on how to build a scalable business model as well as entrepreneurial trainings, and mentorship opportunities.  In addition, modest funding will be provided to teams to assist them in translating their ideas from the lab into a viable product on the market and to help them avoid common failure points.

Hear first-hand from companies who have gone through I-Corps at NIH
