Faculty I-Corps Programs

Faculty I-Corps Programs

RIT faculty play many roles in RIT’s I-Corps program. Sometimes, faculty transfer their applied research to student teams, which then enter into the student track. Other times, faculty work with students as research/technical mentors. When faculty seek to lead and explore an effort to commercialize their research, they enter a faculty-dedicated 4 week I-Corps seminar.

Faculty I-Corps Seminar. Faculty seeking to advance and explore the commercial potential of their research enter this program. Beginning in 2017, the program is offered twice a year in the fall and spring semesters. The seminar is composed of four I-Corps sessions. Consistent with the I-Corps approach, faculty lead teams focus on the customer discovery (getting out of the lab) and business model development.
